Peer Review through Digital Pathology: The future is now?
Presented by: Erio Barale-Thomas, Principal Scientist, Johnson & Johnson R&D
Peer review is a vital step in pre-clinical drug safety studies. However the overhead of slide shipment and pathologist travel add costs and delays to the process, meaning it takes longer to reach study end points.
Using digital pathology for peer review can reduce costs, improve results and decrease turnaround time for studies. In this webinar, Erio Barale-Thomas will discuss the benefits of digital pathology for the peer review process, using his experience with the Aperio PeerReview solution.
After the presentation, you will have the opportunity to ask questions during the live Q&A session.

Erio Barale-Thomas graduated from the National Veterinary School in Lyon, France, in 1989, and received a degree in Toxicologic Pathology from the University of Lyon in 1993. He began his career in toxicologic pathology with MDS Pharma Services in Lyon, and later joined Bayer CropScience at their Sophia Antipolis site in France. Since 2003 he has worked at the Belgian R&D site of the Johnson & Johnson pharmaceutical organisation, Janssen Pharmaceutica.
As a member of the Executive Committees of both the European and French Societies of Toxicologic Pathology, he is closely involved in interactions with regulatory bodies, especially with the French National Agency for the Safety of Medicine and Health Products (ANSM), and the The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Recently he contributed to the ESTP and SFPT public comment on the OECD Draft Guidance for Peer Review.
Erio Barale-Thomas has a long standing interest in digital pathology, particularly in the areas of digital slide scanning, image analysis and data management.
