R&D Digitization & Automation Harnessing AI for Cancer Immunotherapy & Neurodegenerative Disease IoT, Wearables, & Sensors for Clinical Data Collection

New for 2020

The meeting Agenda has been substantially expanded to include AI for genomics, single-cell analysis and target validation, AI for predicting patient response, AI impacting clinical trials, AI for imaging, AI for cancer immunotherapy and neurodegenerative diseases, clinical informatics, data integration, management and storage, digital therapeutics, wearables and sensors.

“A good overview of what other pharmaceutical companies are doing with respect to data management, AI etc. in research”
“Information from those developing and implementing data management systems”
“The fact this was a scientific rather than very commercial conference”
“The ability to network was very important. the program provided ample time for that”

Once again this hugely successful senior-level R&D event will be co-located with the 5th Medicinal Chemistry and Protein Degradation Summit, which also explores machine learning and AI in Drug Discovery and the special one-day symposium on Cannabinoid Drug Discovery which will explore in detail the latest drug discovery developments from leading biotech and pharmaceutical companies targeting the endocannabinoid system (ECS), and creating a new class of regulated therapeutics.
