Emerging Science & Technology in Japan Life Sciences
The Pistoia Alliance has a global mission to “lower barriers to innovation in life science R&D & Healthcare.” To support this, the Pistoia Alliance is running the second of its global knowledge-sharing webinars to provide some specific examples of where the pre-competitive collaboration, shared-risk/shared-reward model can benefit life science companies and professionals in Japan.
Some good example activities include implementation of the FAIR Data Principles, Quantum Computing Community of Interest, and Lab of the Future – followed by an elegant example of exploiting RWD and AI to provide patient stratification to optimize the patient experience and healthcare budget.
The webinar will conclude with a panel discussion of Japanese Life Scientists / Technologists addressing what activities the Japan Chapter of the PA should undertake next.
The Lightning Talks are designed to encourage Q&A as is the panel discussion. A principal outcome of this event will be a better understanding of some of the “hot topics” facing the Japanese Life Sciences community and how the Pistoia Alliance community can come together to help address them.
