The Reality of Artificial intelligence in Drug Discovery

04 March 2021 - 04 March 2021

Artificial Intelligence is constantly in the news, with applications from self-driving cars, healthcare, share-trading, and law. There are also many applications in drug discovery and development, and the promise of the field has led to the formation of many new AI companies, formation of AI groups at large pharma and significant financial investment in the field. Automated drug design, drug repurposing and retrosynthesis are just a few of the specific application areas of AI. But how does the reality match the hype. The meeting brings together recognised experts to provide a realistic view and discuss the likely future of AI in Drug Discovery.

Parallel Trade 2021 – Virtual conference: online access only

22 March 2021 - 23 March 2021

SMi present’s its 15th annual Parallel Trade virtual conference, taking place virtually on the 22nd and the 23rd March 2021. As the only parallel trade conference in Europe, this event provides the perfect platform for industry experts from both sides of the coin to come together and share perspectives on the practice of parallel trade. The 2021 event will be more significant than ever before due to the transition period after Brexit coming to an end this year. As such, the UK will no longer be part of the EU free market. This will mean increased medicines prices, reduced access to some specialist drugs and greater risk of supply chain shortages. In a post-Brexit environment, exhaustion of rights will cease to apply to the UK, making import and export a costly business and in a worst-case scenario could effectively kill parallel distribution. This conference will bring together industry experts to discuss the challenges and drivers of the industry, including the EU regulatory landscape and the impact of the FMD (Falsified Medicines Directive). The conference will also provide global insights on Parallel trade and will reflect on key takeaways for other member states.
