“At XPOMET©, we aim to create a platform connecting important stakeholders in the next generation healthcare and focus on ecosystem based healthcare problems improving accessibility. As a part of this vision, we are organizing XPOMET© Medicinale© a next generation healthcare festival bringing together world’s leading players and decision makers in the next generation healthcare. Our focus is to sustain communities beyond the concept of events and create value from these communities,” said Dr. Jubin Shah, Conference Head at XPOMET©.
“We are happy to present our latest research at the XPOMET Festival, which gathers the key scientists of the ageing research. The topic of AI for 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.
Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to transform the pharmaceutical industry, making the hunt for new pharmaceuticals quicker and more effective. With AI comes the potential to improve drug approval rates, reduce development costs, and help patients comply with their treatments. At Insilico, AI has been used as a powerful tool to identify targets for drug development, and with the ability to simulate and accelerate research processes, artificial intelligence helps more drugs to be discovered and come to market quickly. The presentation will focus on the latest advances in artificial intelligence for discovery, development and real world evidence collection of drugs and geroprotectors.
