User Experience for Life Sciences (UX LS) is a community of UX practitioners focussed on enabling organisations to adopt UX principles and methods as they develop and deploy scientific software. A Pistoia Alliance – EMBL-EBI joint workshop was held on 28-29 June, and built on the activities that have been underway since the inaugural User Experience for Life Sciences workshop, convened in September 2016 at the EBI.
Championed by Till Dettmering of Leica, Joel Miller of Amgen, Pat Keller of Novartis and coordinated by the Pistoia Alliance Project Manager Paula de Matos, this project team has made significant progress towards its key deliverables of the UX for Life Sciences Toolkit viz: case studies, tools & methods and metrics.
This workshop, which had 41 attendees from various global life science companies, launched the next phase of the project – the objectives of which include broadening the community and to expand the number and types of tools available in the UX for Life Sciences Toolkit. Here are the sketchnotes from this special event.
The sub-team leads gave 5 minute lightning talks about their progress and future plans. Michele Ide-Smith sketchnoted these:
The workshop was facilitated by Nick Skinner of Poppyfish.
