Recently, Georges Grinstein, head of the Bioinformatics Program and Co-Director of the Institute for Visualization and Perception Research at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, was in our studios hosting a webcast and promoting his upcoming seminar Exploring Data Visualization in Life Sciences Research. I had a chance to sit down

The 2013 JMP Life Sciences European Roadshow

This May, JMP Life Sciences is going on the road in Europe to demo some of the new features that will be available in the upcoming releases of JMP Clinical 4.1 and JMP Genomics 6.1. The Roadshow is an excellent opportunity to hear about new functionality, ask questions or perhaps sneak

Truly efficient clinical reviews – an example

Truly efficient data reviews for clinical trials

Over the next few posts, I discuss the data review process for clinical trials and highlight some new features for JMP Clinical 4.1 that streamline this monumental endeavor. Ideally, the data from a clinical trial should be examined by as many eyes as possible – including data and protocol managers,
