Day 1 – October 4th – Register>

9:00 am – Introduction by Michael Gersch, CEO at LabKey

9:15 am – Sample Manager Update & Overview
Hannah Brakke, Director of Product Management

9:45 am – Growing pains: Large-scale disease surveillance data challenges and solutions
Dillon McBride, Graduate Research Assistant & PhD Candidate
Animal Influenza Ecology & Epidemiology Research Program (AIEERP) at The Ohio State University

Leading up to and through the COVID-19 pandemic, the AAIERP lab grew substantially in the scope of work and overall volume. Complex study designs and increased testing for SARS-CoV-2 and influenza made it clear that a new and comprehensive data-keeping solution was needed. This presentation covers how the flexibility among sample and source types in Sample Manager allowed AAIERP to keep all of its projects in one place and creates a hierarchical structure that accurately reflects the clustering and source dynamics of sampling schemes.

10:00 am – Adapting Sample Manager as Solution for Lab Data Management of Pancreatic Models of Cancer at the Brenden-Colson Center for Pancreatic Care
Sydney Owen, Research Analyst Oregon Health Science University Brenden-Colson Center for Pancreatic Care

This presentation will describe how Sample Manager has been used to help manage samples and related data at the Oregon Pancreatic Tissue Registry (OPTR), where clinical, research, and specimen data for OPTR participants is managed within a LabKey database. 

10:15 am – Never Lose a Sample Again!
Hannah Brakke, Director of Product Management

Losing samples is an all too common occurrence in the laboratory that can be a huge drain on resources and time. In this presentation we will outline the common pitfalls that lead to lost samples and share how this can be avoided using the features of LabKey Sample Manager.

9:00am – Introducing our Biologics LIMS!
Bernie Lee, Product Manager & Director of Client Services

Our recently launched Biologics LIMS is a cloud-based suite of tools that includes an ELN, Sample Manager, Bioregistry and Workflow Manager. Learn how these tools have been seamlessly integrated to form a LIMS application focused on breaking down data silos and accelerating biotherapeutic development.

9:30am – Connecting Biologics LIMS to Your Data Landscape
Adam Rauch, VP of Product Strategy

Biologics LIMS is a highly extensible application that can fit into the existing data infrastructure of any R&D operation. This presentation will explore how Biologics LIMS connects to external databases, file systems, analysis tools, sequencing software and instrument data to serve as a central data hub of biotherapeutic R&D.

10:00am – Biologics LIMS Use Cases & Features
Bernie Lee, Product Manager & Director of Client Services

This presentation will demonstrate common use cases and associated features of Biologics LIMS. We will take a deep dive into Biologics LIMS and show the application from the point-of-view of daily scientific operations and from project planning and reporting perspectives.

10:30am – System suitability and quality control design for longitudinal quantitative mass spectrometry proteomics
Lindsay Pino, Co-founder & CTO, Talus Bioscience

Scaling mass spectrometry proteomics requires careful monitoring of both sample processing and instrument performance. Many times, this is performed after the fact via dataset normalization, outlier detection, and other statistical methods to control for data quality. Using Panorama, we have designed a prospective workflow for sample quality control and system suitability to monitor data as it is being acquired to quickly diagnose and troubleshoot production issues. 

Day 3 – October 6th – Register>

9:00am – LabKey Server Product Update
Josh Eckels, CTO, LabKey

9:30am – Q&A Session: Digitizing Cell Therapy Process Development with LabKey
Arnaud Colantonio, Head of Development and Manufacturing Informatics at Takeda

This Q&A session will focus on the utilization of LabKey as a scientific data management system (SDMS) and electronic batch record (EBR) in the process development space.  Aspects of intuitive process design, aggregation of data from devices (analytical and process), and integrated data reporting will be discussed.  The presentation will also cover how LabKey fits in as part of a broader digital ecosystem that spans R&D and manufacturing.

10:00am – Sample Manager at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health
Rachelle Farkas, Research Methods Specialist at CAMH

The Centre for Addiction and Mental health (CAMH) is Canada’s largest mental health research facility.  Researchers at CAMH use the Biobank facility where they have adopted Sample Manager to aid their team in tracking, storing, and processing various sample types nationally across their institution. CAMH combines its usage of Sample Manager with LabKey Server to distribute both raw and processed data files and queries to individual project teams. In the coming months, they will expand the use of Sample Manager to their hospital-wide Brain Health Databank initiative, which strives to become one of the largest digital repositories of mental health data.

10:30am – React & LabKey Server: Streamlining workflows with a unique user interface.
Wenjun Huang, Data Scientists Supervisor,  Integrated Data Sciences at Seattle Children’s Therapeutics

This presentation will cover a new React application developed by the team at the Seattle Children’s Therapeutics Division’s Correlative Studies Laboratory. This patient enrollment information tracking application uses LabKey Server to integrate data from multiple input sources and leverages the power of the React JS library to offer a cohesive user experience. The architecture of the application, as well as the advantages of building a React application on LabKey Server over other alternative data storage and user interface approaches will be discussed. The presentation will also highlight how the application addresses pain points in existing workflows, thus enabling the team to be more productive.
