User Experience (UX) Design to build intuitive web applications for life science research

Virtual Event Virtual Event

January 10 @ 14:00 15:00 CET

This online webinar will showcase the basic User Experience (UX) Design principles with lessons learned from adopting them to build web applications in a life science research environment. The event is organised and hosted by NBIS and SciLifeLab with an invited speaker and Senior UX Designer from the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI).

The webinar aims to highlight some of the basic principles of User Experience (UX) Design, to demonstrate how they provide value in the development process and to guide participants to resources for adopting UX Design practices in their own projects. While the intended audience is NBIS and SciLifeLab staff the registration is open to everyone interested in developing web applications and services for life science research. Registration is required to receive instructions and connection details for the event. 

Nikiforos Karamanis, Senior UX Designer at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), describes his talk as follows:

– In this talk I’ll present a case study which introduces the basic principles of UX Design and will hopefully inspire you to apply them to your own projects. I’ll outline the three iterative steps that the UX Design process consists of, namely User Research, Design and Feedback. In User Research we try to understand who our information or data is for and why these people need it. During the Design phase we explore different ways of helping our target users answer their questions. Feedback sessions with users help us figure out if our designs actually work. I’ll conclude the talk with the lessons that I learned from applying this process in a scientific setting and will share some resources to help you learn more about UX design.
