Precision Medicine and AI: Collaborating to Transform Biomedical Research and Development
September 22, 2020 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am
It costs millions of dollars to bring a drug to market – between searching for new drugs, developing new treatments, and having only a fraction of the therapies succeed between trials and regulatory approval – it’s an expensive and long journey.
But what if we could not only streamline the process but make healthcare delivery and therapies more precise and tailored to the needs of individual patients – from prevention to diagnosis and treatment?
The pharmaceutical industry and many academic groups are now using machine learning and other advanced quantitative methods to facilitate development of a new generation of precision therapeutics. Machine learning is on the verge of becoming an invaluable tool for scientists to parse through large volumes of data to predict drug treatment results, identify and reclassify diseases, and diagnose illnesses at early stage, when intervention can be the most effective in curing disease and alleviating pain and suffering. The biopharmaceutical industry, technology companies, and academia are all playing an increasingly important role in this rapidly evolving field.
The need for AI in healthcare can be a critical component of developing precision therapies. From digital pathology to advanced studies designs and issues surrounding data privacy, what is the current state and future of AI in biomedicine? Join us for a virtual program as experts in the field give their perspectives on practical applications of AI and Machine Learning in healthcare and biomedical research and development.
