New Repositories Working Group

By October 19, 2022Blog, News

The R Validation Hub is happy to announce the Regulatory R Repository Working Group, which will be tasked with designing and prototyping the tools to support a cross-pharma, collaborative repository of regulated use case suitable R packages – You can imagine the end result as being a CRAN-like service for systematically vetting packages for regulated use and providing access to high-quality packages. For this, we are looking for new contributors and expertise.

Other Opportunities to Get Involved!

The Hub has two further active technology work streams:

Each of these has been running for a while now but underwent a change in leadership over the summer following the industry departures of Marly Gotti and Yilong Zhang to Apple and Meta respectively.  I’m pleased to say that Eric Milliman (riskmetric) and Aaron Clark (Risk Assessment app) have now picked up the baton(s) and are working together on a joint roadmap to take us forward. 

If you’d like to know more, we’ve just published a new page on the website describing each of our work streams.  Please check it out and, if you have something to contribute, get in touch through the website.

Case Studies

We’re still happy to receive case studies following the three sessions earlier in the year (available to watch here).  These can be oral presentations, or if you would like to write up your case study then we welcome additions to the GitHub repository. Again, please reach out if you would like to know more.
