Day 1 - Wednesday 11th March

IDBS understand that it is time to go beyond traditional lab management and usher in the lab of the future. In this keynote session, they will share insight on how the right informatics tools and platform can enable cutting-edge analysis.

SPEAKER: Unjulie Bhanot, Solution Owner (Biologics Development), IDBS

This session will demonstrate how lab scientists can save up to 80% of their time on manual data transfer and curation by utilizing integration IoLT and informatics capabilities, as well as proving that data exchange in external collaborations can be streamlined and automated to save both CROs and sponsor companies up to 40% of their scientists’ time.

SPEAKER: Rob Brown, VP Product Marketing, Dotmatics


Within drug development, toxicology is one area where AI systems have the potential to revolutionize the process through the application of AI.
Take a closer look at the uses and successes of applications of AI and machine learning in drug development, the best practices around implementation and the potential approaches of applying the technology to toxicity analysis. After this webinar you’ll be able to discern real hope from mere hype.

SPEAKER: Shivanjali Joshi-Barr, Solution Scientist, Clarivate Analytics

The importance of real-time data to improve operations cannot be understated and XiltriX North America President Stephen Tierney will explain how to integrate multiple data sources in a single system, and how to make data meaningful and actionable. This session will demonstrate what to look for when evaluating a monitoring solution such as avoiding disparate systems that might seem cost-effective but lack access to the right information and hinder your ability to prove compliance when audited.

SPEAKERS: Stephen Tierney, President, XiltriX North America

Mark Narcy, Senior Facilities and Operations Manager, Crinetics Pharmaceuticals

Day 2 - Thursday 12th March

The recent hype around AI and machine learning might have made many scientists skeptical about the true value and usability in the lab. During this session we will discuss the impact this technology can have on the productivity of lab staff, via two use cases of very different examples that explain the breadth of applications and outline the key prerequisites to make your AI strategy in the lab a true success.

SPEAKERS: Stéphane Vellay, Senior Solution Scientist, Dassault Systèmes

Peter Henstock, Machine Learning & AI Technical Lead, Pfizer
In a recent study with Oxford Biomedica, Synthace reduced its time frame to insight from data generation to visualization from weeks to minutes. Join this session to find out how the Antha platform can be employed in upstream bioprocessing to drastically reduce time from data generation to insight and enable high-factor DoEs to greatly optimize media, analytical assays and other molecular biology protocols.

SPEAKER: Markus Gershater
Chief Scientific Officer and Cofounder, Synthace Ltd.


Historically, pharma R&D discovery data has been siloed with limited opportunity for analysis. With the volume and variety of data increasing, storage, management and data integrity are becoming key challenges. This session will share insight why and how Roche implemented a data lake for incorporating FAIR standards from minimize costs associated to accessing mass spectrometry data.

SPEAKER: Dr. Felipe Albrecht, Bioinformatics and Computer Scientist, Roche

Day 3 - Friday 13th March

The path to digital lab data management is full of critical challenges, but this session will offer advice on how to create blueprints for the implementation of your lab data strategy in just six months. Addressing the critical challenges of data standardization, global regulatory requirements, legacy application landscape and the high costs associated with data integration, our presenters will offer pragmatic ways to build advanced analytics systems and AI, and present a business case for reducing costs and risks associated with data lakes and data warehouses.

SPEAKERS: Eric Little, Chief Data Officer, OSTHUS

Dr. Heiner Oberkampf, Head of Data Governance at OSTHUS
Operations design and change management are key bottlenecks to technology adoption. In this panel, our speakers will share insight into how they have managed complex implementation strategies and roll-outs, communicated the value of the smart lab to their teams, used gamification to foster adherence and aligned with vendors for a clear external strategy.

SPEAKERS: Yan Song, Director of Scientific Architecture, AbbVie

Jeremy Frey, Head of Computational Systems Chemistry, University of Southampton

4:00-4:45pm [GMT]
Personalization or process? What your digital workflows really need

For digitalization to be most effective, your solution needs to map to current workflows whilst flexing to individual project needs. In this panel, our speakers offer advice on how to design effective digital workflows that respond to the individual lab environment and supported improved process design.
