Sketchnotes from the Workshop: “Success in life science R&D through UX design”

Although I am biased (being one of the organisers) I am very happy to report that the joint ‘EMBL-EBI Industry Programme’/’Pistoia Alliance’ pre-competitive workshop on “Success in life science R&D through user experience design” was a triumph.

The meeting took place this week at EMBL-EBI on the Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge UK and was attended by 35 delegates representing diverse pharmaceutical, agri-food, scientific software, and design companies.  The meeting was chaired by our excellent moderator, Nick Skinner of Poppyfish, with the support of a facilitation team from EMBL-EBI.

This workshop was the first time that:

  • EMBL-EBI and the Pistoia Alliance had collaborated to run a workshop
  • either organisation had run an event exclusively to look at user experience design
  • we came together to explore user experience-related issues faced in the life science R&D sector exclusively

I am sure I will be posting more stuff about this workshop soon, because we generated and refined so many ideas to take forward. What’s more, there is now an emergent “UX design for life science R&D” community, so watch this space to learn more and to get involved.

In the meantime, I wanted to share the sketchnotes from the presentations made during the meeting:

  1. Pat Keller’s Keynote: Empowering scientists to work better, faster, and easier by applying UCD principles and UX process
  2. Niki Karamanis’ Talk: Designing the Open Targets platform: a case study of multidisciplinary alignment
  3. Jessica Vamathevan’s Talk: Perspective on alignment of management aspects and user experience for Open Targets

Enjoy and more later!
