2014 Big Data & Life Sciences Delphi Report
The Big Data & Life Sciences report found that, despite success with big data technologies in other industries, such as e-commerce and financial services, the life sciences have been slower to adopt new technologies that enable analysis of a richer mix of data sources. The goal of the report is to help researchers cut through existing barriers by identifying target segments that are more open to data sharing and to incentivize the development of new data science technology that will lead to breakthroughs in life sciences research.
The report recommends leveraging Massachusetts’ technology leadership position to advance innovation in life sciences research and development. According to the report, a first step could be identifying a cohort of patients to provide portable consent of their data, which will be used to support better patient stratification and identification of predictive biomarkers for biomedical research, clinical trials, diagnostic test development, drug discovery, and drug development.
