The next NCBO Webinar will be held TOMORROW, Wednesday, April 21, at 10am PT. Please note there will not be a VOIP option, and attendees must call into the teleconference.

Below is information on how to join the online meeting via WebEx and accompanying teleconference. The Webinar will be presented by Mr. Bron Kisler, Senior Director, Terminology and Strategic Alliances from the Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC). The title of the presentation is "CDISC SHARE – Pathway into the Future for Standards Development and Delivery".

For a schedule of the 2010 presentations or for more information about the NCBO Seminar Series, see:http://www.bioontology.org/seminar-series.

CDISC SHARE – Pathway into the Future for Standards Development and Delivery

Over the past decade, CDISC has fulfilled its mission by publishing and supporting a suite of standards across the research study lifecycle and data chain from collection (CDASH standard) through regulatory submission (SDTM standard) and analysis (ADaM standard).  More recently, these standards have been complemented and further aligned through standard controlled terminology hosted by the National Cancer Institute.  As global adoption of these standards increases, CDISC wishes to build on this success by providing a “1-stop shopping” environment where CDISC data models, standard data elements and controlled terminology can be aligned, linked and published for electronic access and download. This environment, known as CDISC SHARE, is envisioned as a globally accessible electronic library, which through advanced technology, enables precise and standardized data element definitions to be used by applications and studies to improve biomedical research and its link with healthcare.

A detailed stakeholder analysis revealed that CDISC SHARE will reduce barriers to adoption, enabling organizations to consistently implement a single reference standard across the organization. The creation of a library of shared semantics will enable CDISC stakeholders – global biopharmaceutical companies, academic institutions and clinical research organizations – to achieve multiple benefits including improved operational efficiency around the collection, processing, exchanging and reporting of data, evaluation of drug safety concerns across traditional organizational boundaries, and, in the end, enhanced scientific capabilities and resulting patient benefits and therapeutic efficacies.

In parallel with the development of SHARE, CDISC is optimizing its standards development processes in order to develop and deliver new standards and disease-specific content more quickly. When CDISC SHARE goes live in late 2010, these new standards will be loaded and aligned with existing standards.

Regarding this new multi-dimensional metadata driven approach to standards development, this presentation describes:

-CDISC SHARE Project Background
-Development Partners
-Current Status and Next Steps
-Overview of Disease Projects
-Steps to Accelerate and Improve Standards Development

Biographical Sketch:

Mr. Kisler has nearly 25-years of technical and business experience from both the public and private sectors.  He has worked in the pharmaceutical industry for 15-years, focusing on development of innovative clinical research and healthcare solutions.

He co-founded several industry organizations including the Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC), where he currently serves as Senior Director, Terminology and Strategic Alliances.  Mr. Kisler spearheaded the CDISC Terminology Program in 2005 and has led the development, harmonization and publication of controlled terminology standards for clinical research.  Within this role he developed key terminology partnerships and most notably with the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Mr. Kisler also manages collaborations with the US FDA, the European Medicines Agency and other global standards development organizations. He serves as CDISC co-lead for ISO-JIC (Joint Initiative Council) projects for which CDISC is a recognized liaison organization.

In partnership with Duke University, Mr. Kisler facilitated development of therapeutic area data standards for Tuberculosis and Acute Coronary Syndrome under the NIH Roadmap Program. These became a springboard for new projects around Kidney Disease, Cardiovascular Disease, and Neurological Disorders. These projects serve as a nexus for collaboration between the clinical community, standards experts, Federal Agencies and other key stakeholder organizations – Academic Medical Centers, Foundations, Professional Societies and industry organizations.

Mr. Kisler is a graduate of the University of Central Florida in Orlando and holds 3 Bachelor of Science degrees in Mathematics, Computer Science and Statistics.
