All Day

Hilton Boston Back Bay


Lab of the Future.

This year’s conference was a great success, below you can see what the agenda was and who our sponsors were.

Thanks to all who attended.

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.
