From Molecule to Business event; Drug discovery re-invented!

Event information Online Briskr Workshop
Date:    Thursday September 30
Welcome: 13:00
Time:   13:30 – 17:00 (+networking/drinks/bites)
Where: Pivot Park, Oss

Drug discovery re-invented!
The Covid-pandemic has shown that the development of new techniques are important for drug discovery. A good example is the recent development of RNA-based vaccine. But every few years a fundamentally new technique will be on the market to improve discovery and development.
Chair: Christian van Munster (HCM Medical)
Key notes: Ruud Couwmans (Byondis) and Anneke Post (ROCHE)

Novel Techniques
During this round table discussion we will address the importance of new techniques like novel RNA techniques, Nano technologies and CRISPR Cas. These techniques increasingly allow us to design molecules with a pre-determined function & use instead of time consuming trial & error.
Host: Christian van Munster (HCM Medical).
Confirmed names: InProcessLSP and Radboudumc (CRISPR-Cas)

The last decade has seen an enormous amount of digitalization of many sectors including also the pharmaceutical sector. This ranges from data collection during development processes to new, better and more precise measurements of molecules. That data and Artificial Intelligence is not only used to optimize productivity in the development phase & in the clinical trial phase, but also in repurposing. During this round table discussion we will talk about several examples how the use of big data and advanced Artificial Intelligence will lead to new approaches of drugs discovery.
Host: Martijn Kriens.

Hybrid event
If the RIVM guidelines allow it (and we have good hopes!) the physical meeting can be held at Pivot Park in Oss with networking/drinks/snacks afterwards. We will keep you informed after applying. Taking account of the 1,5 meter distance, there is a limit to the maximum number of participants that we can receive in Oss (40 persons). With no limitations we can receive 100 persons. We will register you in order of application. The event will be streamed online as well. If a physical event is not possible, we will change to (fully) online.

Good to know
Presentations are in English & the entrance is free (registration upfront is needed though).
