How do scientific discoveries become clinical medicine? Learn more about the process with this workshop led by ScienceSource, a ContentMine project. The workshop also explains how scientific facts can pass into Wikidata (Wikipedia's structured database).

Find out more about how Wiki technology can be used to work with structured data in medicine and how you can help improve the amount of good-quality data on lesser-researched diseases.
