Accelerating pharma innovation depends on maximizing the value of biomedical data assets, including imaging data. Within research organizations, however, data is often underleveraged, siloed, and disorganized. This adds to R&D timelines and costs, hinders AI development, and prevents collaboration that can lead to breakthroughs.
Our panelists discuss:
- Dan Marcus, PhD; Chief Scientific Officer, Flywheel
- Costas Tsougarakis; Vice President Life Sciences Solutions, Flywheel
- Oliver Keown, MD; Managing Director, Intuitive Ventures
Inside the Mind of a Data Scientist: Anisha Keshavan

Accelerating Clinical Research with Automated Workflows for Personalized Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Treatment
Stanford Medicine’s Brain Stimulation Lab is managing large volumes of complex psychiatric data in its research and clinical trials on treatment-resistant depression. Typical processing workflows for managing this volume and complexity of data are manual and time-consuming. The lab’s work with vulnerable patient populations demands a faster and more reliable approach. In this webinar, Dr. Azeezat Azeez, a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Stanford, outlines her approach to automating research workflows that help clinicians accelerate their research and treatment planning.
Powering Secure Data Discovery Across a Global Network of Innovators: What Will It Take
In this webinar, Francisco Gimenez, Partner at 8VC, and Flywheel discuss the data challenges faced by the biomedical research community and real-life examples from teams that are developing collaborative data networks. They cover the therapeutic areas experiencing accelerated innovation with enhanced data discovery and how commercial organizations are collaborating with research institutions to streamline discovery.
Unlocking AI on Medical Imaging Data: Flywheel, Clara, and Pure Storage
There’s been a large increase in organizations using AI to extract insights from medical data. As the volume and diversity of medical imaging data increases, however, deep learning pipelines can easily be throttled by slow data loading. Getting DICOM images from a PACS into federated training applications like Clara can be a major workflow limiter. We describe the major components that impact the performance of a medical imaging AI workflow using Flywheel as the data curation and management platform.
Unlocking Precision Medicine: Streamlining Data Management for Multi-Site Traumatic Brain Injury Research
Precision neuroscience has the potential to revolutionize diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation for traumatic brain injury (TBI). In this webinar, learn how Dr. Geoff Manley, Professor and Vice Chairman of Neurological Surgery at UCSF, and TRACK-TBI colleagues leverage Flywheel to collect and curate medical imaging from 18 major research institutions around the country to enable shared imaging repositories and foster public-private partnerships. Dr. Manley will explain how using Flywheel to streamline cloud-based data and compute management has helped researchers study deep learning segmentation, identify new blood-based biomarkers, and develop diagnosis for TBI using information on prognosis.
Cloud-Scale COVID-19 AI Research and Collaboration in Radiology
Data management is a key component to developing AI software. Organizations need adaptable, scalable infrastructure that can provide access to curated data while maintaining strict privacy and compliance standards and supporting secure sharing across multiple institutions. In this webinar, learn how a small, investigator-initiated project developed into a valuable COVID-19 chest CT dataset using Flywheel’s research data management platform. You will also hear how Imbio is exploring the correlation between lung injury severity and patient prognosis, as well as developing AI to diagnose COVID-19.
CMU-Pitt BRIDGE Center Standardizes on BIDS with Flywheel
In this conversation with Dr. Timothy Verstynen, Co-Director at the Carnegie Mellon University – University of Pittsburgh BRIDGE Center, hear how the Center addresses the problem of increasing data complexity by supporting research collaboration and enabling open science at the point of data access. Flywheel’s Michael Perry discusses how the centralized platform streamlines BIDS in an end-to-end solution for data management and collaboration.
Solving Large Scale Medical Imaging AI Problems
Dr. John Garrett, Director of Informatics at the University of Wisconsin Department of Radiology, discusses the state of machine learning in medical imaging and his development of AI to diagnose COVID-19 using thousands of chest X-rays collected and curated in Flywheel. Brad Genereaux explains how NVIDIA facilitates rapid AI training and Travis Richardson overviews Flywheel’s ecosystem for collaboration between academia, clinical organizations and life sciences.
SCOPE: Accelerating Enterprise-Scale Medical Imaging R&D for Innovation and Discovery
Can Akgun, SVP of Business Development at Flywheel, discusses streamlining the ingestion of diverse data from internal and external sources and Flywheel’s ability to scale processing and support machine learning workflows.
