D3D: Data, Drugs, & Diagnostics
Optimizing Preclinical Imaging Workflows with Online Tools
Common preclinical research challenges such as data inaccuracy, subjectivity, and irreproducibility can be addressed through smart online tools. By improving image management, analysis, and reporting workflows, researchers can enhance effective collaboration while increasing data access, accuracy, consistency, and reproducibility of analyses.
Benefits realized can include positive scientific repercussions through better reproducibility of analyses, and accelerated research timelines. Tools that acknowledge limitations in staffing and funding while minimizing administrative chaos result in more responsible financial decisions.
