Life sciences

Accelerate the discovery and development of new patient treatments and operate more efficiently with Google Cloud.

Use cases

Clinical research data management and analytics

Life science organizations are facing a crisis in cost effectively uncovering drug targets. In many cases, these challenges stem from issues with data and technology rather than the research itself. For example, researchers within R&D organizations are grappling with data explosion at a rate of 48% annually1 — while still working on siloed infrastructures and legacy systems.

With the help of Google Cloud's R&D data management and analysis solution, researchers can expedite their drug discovery and research through modernized infrastructure, effective data management, and efficient collaboration. Life science organizations benefit from our solution that's comprised of products specifically built for them, including: Healthcare API for Clinical Data (HL7v2, FHIR) and Medical Imaging (DICOM), and G Suite (supporting HIPAA compliance). Through this comprehensive R&D solution, life science organizations can manage large volumes of structured and unstructured data siloed across research sites as well as quickly analyze and generate insights from large amounts of data using Google Cloud's fully managed data warehouse BigQuery and Google Cloud's fully managed TensorFlow service Cloud ML Engine.

Capabilities

Improve data analysis with smarter storage

Siloed and fragmented data hinders scientific research and delays the drug development process. Storing your organization's data in a way that is useful for analytics is the first step in enabling insights. With Google Cloud big data solutions, you can aggregate, store, and de-identify your data. Then connect your data to advanced Google Cloud capabilities with the Cloud Healthcare API.

We can do important research faster than ever.
