BIA - Accelerating Drug Discovery through digital and AI innovations

  • Wednesday, 15 September 2021, 9:15 AM to 12:00 PM

Emerging data technologies and AI are already identifying the drivers behind disease and discovering new approaches to diagnose and treat those diseases. This event by the BIA Science and Innovation Advisory Committee (SIAC) will help SMEs involved in discovering new therapies and diagnostics understand how they can benefit from digital tools and innovations to accelerate R&D, reduce the risks, and transform their businesses.

Case studies will be presented from organisations that have successfully used AI and digital tools in discovery, covering data generation, manipulation, and application. Further workshops are likely to follow on topics identified by attendees, so please do share your thoughts on how we can support you in this area.

If you'd like to join this event, they would be grateful if you would fill out this 5-minute survey to help them understand how best to tailor this event to your needs.
