SMi is proud to announce the 2nd annual AI in Drug Discovery virtual conference taking place on 15th and 16th March 2021

With the global Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Drug Discovery Market size expected to exceed $3,900 million by 2027, this year’s agenda will encompass key drivers leading the way into a shorter, cheaper, and more successful R&D era. The conference will cover hot topics including; machine learning techniques for improving early drug discovery, effective prediction of ADMET properties, data quality, and innovative applications of AI for undruggable targets.


This year’s event will focus on 4 key themes: machine learning and automation for improved drug discovery pipelines; effective prediction of compound properties; data robustness and curation; innovative use of AI for rare and undruggable diseases. The agenda will highlight key case studies across these themes, uncovering key developments in pharma of data optimization and to aid therapeutic discovery. Real-world examples of AI in structure-based drug design and patient relevant data will be explored.
 

This two-day agenda offers you peer-to-peer networking with industry experts including directors and heads of informatics, data & AI, molecular design, and computational chemistry, to explore the latest developments in the industry, regulatory updates, and case studies from leading pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.

AI in Drug Discovery will explore the latest industry case studies from leading pharma and biotech companies on machine learning and improved drug discovery pipelines. Understand how AI can be effectively implemented to enhance discovery R&D, delve into best practices in data quality, curation and validation, and examine novel uses of AI to unlock therapies that have evaded traditional drug discovery.
 

The SMi Virtual Conference Platform will deliver the following benefits:

  • Live and On Demand speaker content: Get access to the latest strategies and case studies from your market place online!
  • Network with all the event attendees: Connect, see who’s attending, chat and share contact details with all online delegates, speakers and sponsors

WHAT IS CPD?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

GLOBAL CPD

Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.

CPD Certificates

We can provide a certificate for all our accredited events. To request a CPD certificate for a conference , workshop, master classes you have attended please email events@smi-online.co.uk
