Future of Data Analytics in Lifescience and Clinical research



Hi All,

I have been in Clinical Database development domain since 11 years. In the course of my professional career I have developed clinical databases, cleaned the DB for discrepant data, developed customized reports for customers, extracted raw data for statistical analysis.
However, the statistical analysis has been done by a different team with SAS skill.

I am interested in the field of data analysis pertaining to lifescience and Healthcare. To be more specific the interest is more in the predictive analysis and text analysis.

I would like to know how can I purse my interest. How can I do dummy projects and where can I get free downloadable data to do hands on.

I would also like to know the future Prosperous the data analytics in Lifescience and Healthcare.

Thank you.
