Pistoia Alliance Virtual Conference 2020
Bringing the life sciences and healthcare community together to advance innovation in R&D
The Pistoia Alliance Virtual Conference week offered a unique opportunity for the life sciences community to come together to debate important developments across the pharma and life science R&D value chain.
Keynote presentations and panel discussions covered themes including Digital, Lab of the Future and Artificial Intelligence while identifying key areas where the Pistoia Alliance can set up collaborative projects that will make a real difference to research and ultimately to patients.

Thanks to all those who attended.
Digital is transforming research and that transformation is happening now. Hear from a panel of experts on the potential of digital and how that potential can be realized.
Our experts share their experience and knowledge in the field of delivering virtual clinical trials, looking at topics such as patient recruitment, mobile data capture, system validation, regulatory aspects, and patient data safeguarding.
This webinar presents the Cellosaurus, a manually curated knowledge resource which aims to describe all cell lines used in biomedical research. Currently it describes over 122,000 cell lines from 684 species.
User research is grounded on a collaborative relationship with our end users – scientists, patients, healthcare providers, or other internal colleagues. But what about when you can’t physically be with research participants – be it because of cost, time, or global pandemic? Good news – research does not have to (and should not) stop! Remote research can often take the place of more standard face-to-face methods and glean similar user insights if properly used. And what you give up in physical presence can often be made up for in quantity and/or type of data.
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning has already had some considerable success in drug discovery and development and promises further progress as the quality and breadth of data sets are increased. This session focuses on some of the AI driven initiatives that are being undertaken and reviews the challenges and opportunities in putting AI into practice.
The Covid-19 pandemic has led to a step change in thinking on how research should be done. The challenges range from making labs safe for scientists, to accelerating the move towards virtualisation, digitalisation, and remote working. This session looks at what the Lab of the Future will look like post Covid with a special emphasis on technology, virtualisation, facilities, and workspace planning.
