The Drug Information Association (DIA) is a global association that mobilizes life science professionals from across all areas of expertise to engage with patients, peers and thought leaders in a neutral environment on the issues of today and the possibilities for tomorrow.

Under the theme of “New Challenges, New Solutions: to overcome with people all over the world together”, this year’s Japan Annual Meeting will provide opportunities for stakeholders from industry, government, academia, and patient bodies to look back at what has been accomplished and learned during the COVID-19 pandemic and engage in deeper dialogues.

Digital Science is looking forward to exhibiting at the virtual event and presenting a luncheon seminar hosted by Dr Suze Kundu, Engagement and Advocacy at Dimensions Life Sciences and Chemistry (part of Digital Science), on Tuesday 26 October at 11:45 AM JST.

Using interactive dashboards to share scientific information

In the fast-paced world of research, sharing information quickly and clearly is the key to making impactful progress. This has never been more evident than during the COVID-19 pandemic. Research information is being published at an unprecedented rate. We understand the challenges healthcare professionals face in trying to keep on top of the latest trends and breakthroughs. Gaining meaningful, actionable insights from the analysis of this information can be a mammoth task.

We believe that dashboards can transform decision-making in research, when in the hands of those that need to act quickly on a lot of new information. Gone are the days when daily stats are disseminated to teams on sheets of printed paper. We believe that information should be shared quickly, easily, and clearly, and be as up to date as possible. With dashboard technology, there is no ‘final’ answer; the information is there to be probed thanks to the interactive user interface of a well-designed product.

At Digital Science, we create and develop cutting edge technological breakthroughs that help make research tasks more manageable, driving better research as a result. In this talk, we’ll be demonstrating how our platform simplifies communications and therefore increases engagement with research information, for and between healthcare practitioners, corporate partners, and the general public using dashboards.

We’ll take a look at how collaborators such as the Pfizer Medical Affairs team have been using COVID-19 information made available through Dimensions from Digital Science – probably the most comprehensive real-time research knowledge platform – to gather insights on clinical trials transformation, digitalization and telemedicine during this pandemic.

Meet the team

Suze Kundu Headshot

Dr Suze Kundu
Engagement and Advocacy at Dimensions Life Sciences and Chemistry (part of Digital Science)

Suze is fascinated about breaking down the building blocks of life into its fundamental components – luckily science has enabled her to turn this destructive curiosity into a career. She has a BSc in Chemistry, an MSc in Analytical Chemistry and a PhD in Materials Chemistry from University College London. A passionate educator, she has also studied for a PGCE in Senior School Science, and an MEd in University Learning and Teaching.

Suze spent six years lecturing in the Department of Materials at Imperial College London and at the University of Surrey’s Chemical and Process Engineering Department, before joining Digital Science in 2018, initially as Head of Public Engagement, and now undertaking engagement and advocacy for Dimensions L&C.  You can find Suze sharing her passion for science through live lectures, on TV (Discovery Channel) and radio, and in print.
