The Drug Safety Research Unit (DSRU) is an independent academic unit internationally respected for its work in Pharmacovigilance, Pharmacoepidemiology, Risk Management and Training Services for over 30 years.
In partnership with doctors in England, the DSRU, led by Director Professor Saad Shakir, aims to protect patients in primary and specialist care from unwanted adverse effects of newly marketed medicines using our unique methods of monitoring patients during the lifecycle of medicines.
The conference that aims to cover the challenges and opportunities provided by the use of Big Data.
The scale of available health data is increasing rapidly and as the age of Big Data is established, we will be holding the first conference on “Big Data for Pharmacovigilance”.
Pharmacovigilance is increasingly characterised by extremely large data sets from populations, individuals, disease registries, social media, pharmacogenomics and more. While big data can be messy, efforts are underway to establish strategies for ordering and structuring the data in order to put it to the best use in pharmacovigilance and ultimately public health. We will consider how best to link these large data sets and identify data clusters, the challenges and rewards of such large scale data analysis, ways to protect data security and patient confidentiality, and many other pertinent issues.
