R/Pharma October 2020

By October 26, 2020Blog

The R/Pharma virtual conference this year was held October 13-15th, 2020. R/Pharma focuses on the use of R in the development of pharmaceuticals, covering topics from reproducible research to drug discovery to genomics and beyond.

Over 1,000 people signed up for the 3 day, free event this year!

Designed to be a smaller conference with maximum interaction opportunities, R/Pharma was a free event that allowed keynote speakers in the R world to present their research and findings in ways that allowed for maximum viewer participation.

All presentations are given in ways that showcase using R as a primary tool within the development process for pharmaceuticals.
