How AI and Big Data are Disrupting Drug Discovery

Tuesday, October 09, 2018 at 8:30am to 9:30am

Broad Institute 415 Main Street, Cambridge, MA 02142

Drug development is costly and uncertain. Companies spend billions developing new drugs only to find they don't work well in the real world. But, artificial intelligence is promising to make this work cheaper, faster, and more effective.

Over breakfast, we'll discuss how the ability to process huge stores of data is enabling drug makers to identify the precise mechanisms of disease, target new therapies to address them, and build more detailed biological profiles of the types of patient who could benefit.
