Kozminski University focuses on education based on reliable scientific knowledge, passed on in a modern way, by a properly prepared, experienced team of scientists, business practitioners and entrepreneurs. KU sees his development in the internationalization of the educational process, and international cooperation is one of the elements of the university's success.
The „WE! are Clinical Research" Movement was created with the intention of introducing international contribution to the discussion about clinical trials. In its assumptions, it wants to connect representatives of various environments, industries and nationalities in order to exchange experiences and build wider cooperation and understanding of the goals of our activities.
Therefore, on behalf of the Kozminski University and ours, we invite you to the first Webinar of the Movement „WE! are Clinical Research” Movement.
Artificial Intelligence in clinical trials?
At the beginning of 2020, a research product designed by artificial intelligence entered clinical trials for the first time. For the first time, but definitely not for the last time! What does it mean for our industry? How will clinical trial planning change? Does this mean that drugs will be able to reach patients sooner?
We will host Aleksandra Przegalińska-Skierkowska, PhD, KU prof. - an expert in her field, who will introduce us to the world of artificial intelligence and its use in various fields, also in research and development.
The second part will be conducted by Karen Taylor and Maria João Cruz from Deloitte UK, with a lecture entitled: Intelligent Clinical Trials Transforming through AI-enabled engagement. Thay will comment on the last 10 years of research work at Deloitte and present the perspective of necessary changes in clinical trials and discoveries of new drugs.
During the meeting, we will invite you to ask questions to our guests.
Time and place: January 18, 2021 at 6:00 PM CET, online.
The webinar will be conducted in Polish and English, thanks to the support of the British Embassy in Poland. Technical issues will be communicated to those registered with a link to the event.
