Webinar: SARS-CoV-2, Influenza and Other Respiratory Viruses Update – 2022

"This webinar will provide a review of the 2021 – 2022 respiratory virus season and will highlight our surveillance strategies and challenges for 2022-2023, based on our expectations, for the upcoming respiratory virus season.

Additional topics that will be discussed include a background in influenza and influenza surveillance, updates on the influenza vaccine strain components, new vaccine technologies for influenza vaccines in the future (mRNA vaccines, etc.), updates on influenza transmission globally, SARS-CoV-2 updates including continued WGS for strain surveillance, and updates on other respiratory virus activity and surveillance programs.

A certificate of participation will be granted to each participant based on 1.0 contact hours of instruction toward credit."

Webinar: Forensic Information Management Should Be More Than a LIMS

"Today’s law enforcement organizations need more than a LIMS. Historically, Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) were designed for testing labs. A conventional LIMS, for example, could be utilized to test water samples or raw materials in a manufacturing process. Forensic organizations require a case-focused system that encompasses the full evidentiary life cycle. For example, in the market, there are stand-alone quality management systems. A better approach is to employ a system that incorporates quality features to support compliance with ISO17025 and other regulatory bodies."

"As an attendee, you will learn more about:

* Why you need a forensic information management system versus a generic LIMS
* What functions should you expect in a forensic information management system
* How can you be confident the underlying technology is rigorous enough to support your operation for years to come"

Webinar: Data Science Applications in Laboratory Medicine

"The practice of medicine is changing rapidly to include the introduction of automated and algorithmic solutions to clinical and operational challenges. These approaches represent a dramatic improvement over manual paper-based healthcare practices.

In this webinar, Dr. Daniel Holmes will provide examples of data analytics applications in laboratory medicine to demonstrate how laboratory data can be leveraged to improve healthcare delivery and operations. Exploration of data analytic tools, including select applications of machine learning, will be covered to illustrate how they can be utilized to automate manual laboratory processes, develop new quality monitoring and assurance tools, and support clinical/operational decisions. Dr. Holmes will demonstrate how the analysis of laboratory data yields information that is necessary for the evidence-based planning and decision making in the health care system."

Webinar: Challenges on Academic Path as Female Informatics Scientists

"Higher education and public research institutions in Europe have encountered a o low interest of women for advanced studies or an academic career in Computer Science (CS). CS is a field intertwined with multiple dimensions of society, including the economic dimension and it has a reputation, corroborated by many studies over the years, of being a field in which men have been the makers of history. We try to identify which are the most important challenges that women perceive as threats and obstacles in their academic path in Informatics, and how can we build solutions to overcome them. We argue that only continuous and corroborated effort can have an impact on current status."

The series addresses core topics in clinical informatics as outlined by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education as well as cutting edge research being done nationally.

This series is designed to change the way clinicians approach clinical informatics problems and provide them with tools to create more successful intervention.

The seminar intends to provide attendees with the tools to:

* Apply Clinical Informatics principles to solve clinical and operational challenges
* Understand proven informatics tools and techniques
* Critically review informatics evidence

Sessions are held virtually (via Zoom) on Tuesdays 12–1pm. Check the DBMI Calendar for upcoming sessions and descriptions."

Webinar: Clinical Adoption of AI Across Image Producing Specialties

" technologies are being rapidly developed. However, clinical adoption of these technologies has been relatively slow. In this webinar, we bring together leaders from a broad range of specialties to discuss similarities and differences in the standards, requirements, and concerns with bringing AI into their respective practices. The goal is to formulate some consensus on best practices by looking at the problem from a '10,000 foot view.'"

Webinar: Pharmacogenomics: Leveraging Capacity to Expand Your Molecular Laboratory Capabilities

"Pharmacogenomics (PGx) has immense potential in the routine clinical testing space. However, there are many considerations to PGx adoption and scalability within the laboratory. Clinical laboratory leaders are unaware of their laboratory’s readiness, the stages of PGx implementation maturity, and the strategic steps they should take to expand into PGx.

In this Dark Daily webinar with live Q&A, Jeff Shaman, PhD, MS, Chief Science Officer of Coriell Life Sciences will discuss why pharmacogenomics matters and how the COVID health crisis has created unprecedented capacity and acceptance for PGx in laboratory testing.

Up-and-coming and seasoned lab leaders will learn how laboratory technology, science, implementation models, and economic proof points have all achieved deployable maturity for PGx labs. Most importantly, we will define the stages of PGx laboratory implementation maturity and key success points for expanding your laboratory’s PGx testing capacity."

Webinar: Automate Biologics and Gene Therapy Formulation Workflows for Better Data with Big Kahuna and Junior

"Join us for a free webinar (sponsored by Unchained Labs) hosted by Unchained Labs Director of Field Automation Scientists Rick Sidler, Ph.D., on Thursday, October 13 at 11 a.m. CDT!

Biologics and gene therapy formulation development require preparation, stressing and characterization to find optimal conditions for a variety of payloads and vectors. Finding a single solution that combines all of this at scale within a single data repository is a challenge that needs to be overcome to ramp up development studies. In this webinar, Sidler will present the problem, the solution and the proof for developing biologics and gene therapy formulations."

Webinar: Beyond data breaches: High stakes in the new threat environment

"Cybersecurity isn't just about protecting patient data anymore. Privacy protections and keeping PHI off the dark web are still priorities, of course – but now the stakes are much higher. A crippling cyberattack could take a hospital offline for days, weeks or even months. Delays and disruptions of care pose serious risks to patient safety.

How to protect against such a severe scenario? How to develop risk mitigation strategies, how to build resiliency, how to respond to an attack effectively and recover as quickly as possible? It takes careful planning and a multi-layered approach to both prevention and response."

Webinar: Simplify the Development and Implementation of Diagnostic Testing in European Laboratories

"Many laboratories around the world have adopted expanded diagnostic testing capabilities to address the coronavirus pandemic and are now seeking ways to expand testing with additional workflows for infectious disease syndromic panels, pharmacogenomic analysis, oncology testing, and more.
Historically, developing a molecular test within a clinical laboratory has been perceived as a complicated and laborious process. In this webinar, we aim to dispel common misconceptions of in-house devices (IHD*) (also known as in-house test or in-house assay (IHA)) by providing a comprehensive overview of what it takes for a clinical laboratory to establish an in-house assay (IHA) in their laboratory."
