The Avicenna Alliance organised its first Avicenna Day 2020 as an online event that took place on Tuesday 25th of August 2020 during the VPH2020 conference.
This year the Avicenna Day was very successful and saw the contribution of speakers from the FDA, EMA, Notified Bodies, leaders of medical device and pharma companies, academic leaders and CEOs of fast growing startups.
The event discussions were framed around recent progress in the different working groups, engagements by Alliance and the activities of various task forces to initiate or amplify successful collaborations with clinicians, academics, industries, policymakers, regulators and other stakeholders.
The event was a great opportunity for stakeholders to get a quick and comprehensive overview of where we stand with the translation of in silico methods to the patient and what could be expected in the foreseeable future. More than 100 participants attended the event and contributed to the prioritisation of concrete next steps to further advance in silico medicine!
More information and a copy of all the presentations will be shared soon on the Alliance website: http://avicenna-alliance.com/
The Avicenna Alliance is a non-profit where academia, healthcare organizations and industries have joined forces with the same mission as the VPHi: promoting the uptake of in silico medicine research. By statute, all VPHi members are also members of the Avicenna Alliance and they have the opportunity to take part to the activities they organise.
If you attended the event and you would like to get more directly involved with the Avicenna Alliance, please get in touch with us (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org). Your contribution can make the difference!
