Lab of the Future.

View the agenda.

The distinction between the research laboratory, clinic, ambulatory care and the hospital is diminishing as technology blurs the boundaries. Major advances are being seen in:

  • Automation
  • Connectivity
  • Machine learning
  • Augmented reality
  • Quantum computing
  • Blockchain

The loop is being closed between clinical outcomes data and research data. Scientific advances delivering lab-on-a-chip and even human-on-a-chip bring research infrastructure closer to the patient with far quicker turnaround times. We envisage fundamental changes in how we leverage our learnings from real life data into discovery and development, and see an increase need for collaboration between all parties involved, from:

  • Pharma companies to payers
  • CROs to technology vendors
  • Regulators to Pharma companies
  • Academics to publishers

It is vital to stay ahead of the rapid advances in all technologies, from machine learning to mobile health, and to derive the greatest benefit from them.The patient  is becoming the very centre of future R&D and will require us to wrestle not only with technical issues, but with issues like data ownership, scalability and ethics, as precision medicine becomes the norm.

Why Attend?

The Pistoia Alliance US Conference 2017 will offer delegates an opportunity to debate the convergence that is already taking place across the pharma and life science R&D value chain, and identify key areas where the Pistoia Alliance, already a thought leader in many of these areas, can set up collaborative projects that will make a real difference to research.

The 2017 edition of the Pistoia Alliance US Conference is intended primarily for the benefit of Pistoia Alliance members and special guests. We are operating a permanent waitlist to ensure that this is the case. If the event appears to be sold out please accept the option to join the waitlist as more tickets will be released later. Non-members will be admitted only if space remains after allocating all member ticket requests.
