Embrace R in Pharma - Building an R Community (306394)

*Ning Leng, Genentech 

Keywords: collaboration, inner-source, R, community

R is the dominant language in modern quantitative science, however it is still not widely used in pharma industry. In this talk I will share learnings in building an internal R user community in a large global organization, via efforts including cataloging existing efforts, coordinating R adoption pilots, fit-for-purpose trainings, etc. In addition, I will discuss our efforts in introducing the inner-source concept to the organization to enable a working model with enhanced efficiency and reproducibility, towarding our mission of bringing life-saving medicines to patients faster.
