Data, Evidence and Case Studies from the World’s Leading Minds in Pharma
The concept of D4 is simple.
Deliver 30+ pharma-led case studies outlining data and evidence that will allow attendees to gather intelligence and make strides forward in their data-driven discovery and development approaches. D4 Pharma is a ‘best-in-class’ event, with an unrivalled quality of speakers, attendees and discussions.
Put together by pharma, for pharma. This event is the result of 8 Special Interest Groups, designed by people from every big pharma company in the top 20, and others, to identify priorities, challenges and solutions, and construct a conference that moves beyond ‘what if’ and straight to ‘how’ and ‘now’.
Bring together enablers and doers. D4 brings together IT/data professionals (those building and improving systems/technology – ENABLERS) together with scientists using data to deliver better results (DOERS). The needs and priorities of both groups are different, so D4 has separate tracks for each. However, they also need to understand each other better, so D4 brings the whole group back together at critical points in the meeting.
Deliver near term results from AI/ML. Low productivity has become the norm, and development success is dropping. We need changes and results now. With dozens of conferences offering to exhibit the potential and hope of AI and ML, D4 will move beyond air-headed and vacuous discussions – showcasing the evidence, data and case studies of pioneering technologies and approaches.
