Technology is driving change in life sciences R&D and Healthcare. The Pistoia Alliance 2019 Annual USA Conference will offer a unique opportunity for its members to come together to discuss important developments across the pharma and life science R&D value chain.


Plenary presentations, panel discussions, breakout sessions, poster presentation, the final of the President’s Startup Challenge and a networking reception will provide stimulus and opportunity for discussions to review the Pistoia Alliance project portfolio and identify key areas for the next generation of pre-competitive collaborative projects that will make a real difference to research and to patients.
