Global Pharma R&D Informatics Congress

Increasing amounts of data are constantly being generated from a wide number of sources. This creates a great opportunity to extract new insights into how diseases work and how drugs can be developed to provide more targeted and effective treatments, but only if pharma and biotech companies can structure, integrate, and analyse this data to derive useful knowledge from it.

The industry therefore needs to develop new methods and utilise new technologies to get the best out of the information available as well as integrate their internal systems so that all teams get the information they need in a way they can understand in order to accelerate the drug development pipeline.

This conference is the perfect opportunity to learn about these developments and network with experts working in all areas of pharmaceutical R&D IT and discovery informatics.

A selection of our 2017 speakers include:


This conference will cover the latest methods and technologies for data management, storage, analysis, and representation including AI and Machine Learning as well as strategies for system integration and workflow optimisation. Attendees will hear from IT leaders from the top pharmaceutical companies about how they are using the latest informatics tools and technologies to speed up their drug and biomarker discovery and development processes.
