Wednesday, June 19, 2019 – Insilico Medicine, a biotech company developing the end-to-end drug discovery pipeline utilizing the next generation artificial intelligence, will present its latest results in modern and next-generation AI for drug discovery and productive longevity at the Ageing, Health & Rejuvenation Nature Conference in Rotterdam, on June 23rd. Insilico Medicine is also very proud to be one of the bronze sponsors of the event this year, which will give a unique opportunity to present our brand and to communicate with the most skilled people of ageing research. The event is jointly organised by Erasmus MC, Nature, Nature Medicine and Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology.
The conference brings together experts from diverse fields of research that explore the mechanisms of ageing and rejuvenation, from the perspective of genetics and epigenetics, cellular quality control and senescence, stem cells, metabolism and brain function. The aim of the conference is to foster interactions and stimulate discussion of recent and unpublished advances in our understanding of the ageing process, and to explore new therapeutic opportunities for the rejuvenation and preservation of organs and tissues to extend healthspan.
“We are happy to present our latest research at the Ageing, Health & Rejuvenation Nature Conference, which gathers the key scientists of the ageing research. The topic of machine learning implementation in drug discovery is rapidly gaining popularity, and we are happy to be at the leading edge of this research and one of the innovation drivers in the area,” said Alex Zhavoronkov, Ph.D., Founder, and CEO of Insilico Medicine.
