BIO-IT WORLD WEST: Driving Scientific Discoveries with Data, Infrastructure, and Technology Tools to Improve Patient Health and Guide Precision Medicine

Pharmaceutical companies are undergoing a digital transformation. By experimenting with new initiatives, they are positioned to play a role in the revolution of healthcare. This transformation is driven by data from internal and external sources, including both -omic data and that from digital devices. Bio-IT World WEST, part of Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference, brings together all the stakeholders involved in this transformation.

Bio-IT World WEST is excited to return to San Francisco in 2020 with an expanded educational and networking program that promises to build on the success of our Boston-based 19th Annual Bio-IT World Conference & Expo. For the past 19 years, Bio-IT World Conference & Expo has established itself as a premier event focused on the innovative IT and informatics applications and enabling technologies that are driving the future of precision medicine. Bio-IT World Conference & Expo highlights the new frontiers in drug discovery & development, biomedical research, and clinical and healthcare initiatives made possible by these cutting-edge technologies. Join us at Bio-IT World WEST with an entirely new audience as we explore the Digitization of Pharma R&D, AI-Enabled Drug Discovery and Development, Emerging Technologies for Life Sciences, and Software Tools, Services, and Applications.
