AI and Drug Discovery: Marrying Data Science with Core Biology"

In Summary: Machine learning and model-based drug discovery is rapidly becoming the norm. Computational biology is now integrating 'wet' in vitro/in vivo and 'dry' insilico biology accelerating and saving time and resources, at least in the early stages of drug discovery. This panel will explore the new world of AI and Drug Discovery as a way to model potential drug effects more accurately and quickly.
