Insilico to present at the Russian Pharmaceutical Forum
Wednesday, May 8, 2019 – Insilico Medicine, a biotech company developing the end-to-end drug discovery pipeline utilizing the next generation artificial intelligence, will present its latest results in modern and next-generation AI for drug discovery and productive longevity at the Russian Pharmaceutical Forum in Saint Petersburg, May 15.
Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to transform the pharmaceutical industry, making the hunt for new pharmaceuticals quicker and more effective. With AI comes the potential to improve drug approval rates, reduce development costs, and help patients comply with their treatments.
At Insilico, AI has been used as a powerful tool to identify targets for drug development, and with the ability to simulate and accelerate research processes, artificial intelligence helps more drugs to be discovered and come to market quickly. The presentation will focus on the latest advances in artificial intelligence for drug discovery, conducting clinical trials, personalised medicine, and rare disease identification.
“We are happy to present our latest research at the Russian Pharmaceutical Forum, which gathers the leading industry leaders. The topic of artificial intelligence for drug discovery is rapidly gaining popularity, and we are happy to be at the leading edge of this research and one of the innovation drivers in the area,” said Alex Aliper, President of EMEA at Insilico Medicine.
The Russian Pharmaceutical Forum remains the largest independent international conference in Russia devoted to addressing the pharmaceutical industry’s most pressing issues. The key topics the Forum aims to approach, include: digitalisation in healthcare and pharmaceutical sector, pharmaceutical drug reimbursement, drug labeling, the patient-centric model, state purchasing, import substitution, innovation potential.

Insilico Medicine is regularly publishing research papers in peer-reviewed journals. The company was first to apply the generative adversarial networks (GANs) to the generation of the new molecular structures with the specified parameters and published a seminal peer-reviewed paper submitted in June 2016. The concept was further extended and augmented with advanced memory and reinforcement learning. One of the latest papers published in the Journals of Gerontology demonstrated the application of the deep neural networks to assessing the biological age of the patients. The latest special issue in Molecular Pharmaceutics featured several research papers by Insilico Medicine. Insilico published an overview of its results in aging research including the development of AI aging biomarkers, target identification, cross-species comparison and geroprotector discovery in Aging Research Reviews, one of the highest-impact journals in the field.
