General Description of Organization and/or Areas of Expertise:  Digital Aurora provides advisory and management services for informatics intensive life science and healthcare research initiatives.  We have deep expertise in establishing and leading research informatics organizations and initiatives spanning drug discovery, clinical trials, regulatory science, and real-world healthcare data. We have advised on the implementation of virtual R&D organizations and collaboration platforms for research partnerships and alliances. We have also led the design and implementation of large scale scientific computing facilities.

In addition to the engineering know how, we have experience building organizational capacity, drawing talent from diverse fields, and creating environments where high caliber teams can excel. We have assembled expert teams of data scientists to pursue complex problems well before the terms “big data”, “smart data”, or “massive data” were in vogue.

Along the way we took on the management of a precedent setting public private research partnership focused on the use of real-world data to generate evidence on the risks and benefits of medical products.
