LIFE SCIENCES - SUMMIT

Life Sciences Digital Summit:
Coding Innovation Into Our DNA

4 - 6th October 2022, America 09:00 - 12:55 EST

Life Sciences Summit

Many life sciences companies have experienced growth and are emboldened with stronger balance sheets from which to invest. 2022 will see significant investments in their portfolios, including next generation therapies and investments, to capitalize on their digital progress. With access to a myriad of tools to gather and analyze data, it’s time for life sciences companies to employ digitalization at scale. Everything from research and development (R&D), to commercial processes, to supply chain, to human resources is being reimagined, digitized, and transformed at a pace that we have not seen in years past.
