If you’ve taken a close look at your chemical inventory lately, then you may have noticed that recently received containers feature newly designed labels. In 2012, OSHA revised its Hazard Communication Standard to align with the UN’s Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. As part of the new guidance, the agency released a compliance schedule and in the time since, deadlines have been reached and passed.

The announcement of regulatory changes can fill life sciences companies with trepidation. More often than not, the implementation of such updates would require resources and manpower that organizations cannot provide without significant investment or reallocation. However, it seems like tightening guidelines are becoming the norm in the life sciences industries.

The first day of training for Science in the Age of Experience 2016 has officially begun! Over the next two days, Dassault Systèmes BIOVIA has scheduled twelve hours of hands-on training with their product experts. With eighteen different sessions, attendees can master any of the solutions BIOVIA has to offer. This is a rare opportunity to learn the latest tips, tricks and techniques from the people who know it best.

Despite being relatively rare, Hodgkin’s lymphoma (HL) tends to strike young adults most often, especially those people in their 20s. On the positive side, HL has one of the highest cure rates of all cancer types, with the very first treatments having been developed almost a century ago. In less optimistic news, however, patients who do not respond to therapy or who relapse face worse outcomes. For this demographic, their options include salvage therapies and bone marrow or stem cell transplants.

After three crazy days of sessions at Science in the Age of Experience, conference attendees get a night off to explore the city of Boston. As one of the oldest cities in the country, Bean Town’s rich history offers something for everyone. Whether you would like to take a walk through time and visit some of the actual sites where key events in the Revolutionary War occurred, catch a game at the oldest ballpark in the country, view one of the most extensive collections of art in the world or explore the vibrant restaurant scene, Boston truly has something for everyone to enjoy.

The last twenty years have seen a massive influx of new, innovative technologies transforming the way we work, play and live. These innovations have reached into the sciences as well: every day advances in technology enable new approaches, techniques and methodologies. Yet as organizations embrace these advances, they must be conscious of how they can improve their overall R&D experience to truly leverage their potential. This year at Science in the Age of Experience you can explore new technologies with transformative capabilities in scientific R&D. The 3DEXPERIENCE Playground will house interactive exhibits ranging from virtual 3D models of a living human heart to projections of the quality of an oil field throughout production.

Our modern lifestyles keep us very busy. Between work, chores and spending quality time with family and friends, we aren’t left with much free time. In fact, I’d argue that we often try to streamline certain tasks to maximize what downtime we do have. For many people, preparing meals falls into that category. While I love to cook, I can certainly understand why other people would not. Food planning and preparation can take forever if you don’t enjoy the process. This attitude is why consumers are seeing more pre-packaged, fresh ready-made dinners and healthy-for-you, organic snacks in grocery stores. Ironically, one food category doesn’t seem to be enjoying the same amount of success: frozen food.

Today marks the beginning of Science in the Age of Experience, the Dassault Systèmes user conference for advances in scientific research. BIOVIA, along with their sister brand and co-host SIMULIA, have planned a week of in-depth walkthroughs of their solutions, customer success stories, hands-on training and future product roadmaps. While today’s opening plenary session, which features appearances from Bernard Charlès, the CEO of Dassault Systèmes, Professor Martin Karplus, the 2013 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry and Mark Meili of P&G, promises an exciting start, tomorrow morning will keep up the pace with presenters from Sanofi, 3M and Amgen for our plenary sessions.
