Harnessing Artificial Intelligence for Higher Quality Data in Preclinical Trials and Translational Research

The preclinical phase of drug discovery commonly includes going through numerous histopathological samples. This contributes to the drug development process being time-consuming and labour-intensive for pharmaceutical and contract research organizations. Difficulties also stem from having to detect very subtle changes with high precision and accuracy. Manual quantification of small changes, or specific cell counting, is not only cumbersome but also, often involves high costs.

The digitization of glass slides has paved the way for even more advanced technology like artificial intelligence (AI), to further advance image analysis in a variety of medical fields. AI-based methods have the potential to standardize slide review by reducing bias while increasing the speed and accuracy of analysis.

In this webinar, the featured speaker discusses utilizing a cloud-based software from Aiforia Technologies, for automating image analysis tasks with AI to enhance the CRO’s work by providing higher quality data and therefore confidence in this data to their clients across pharmaceutical companies. Through the software, the speaker created several AI models for assessing different markers from the central nervous system (CNS) tissue.

Join this webinar to hear case studies with large pharmaceutical and biotechnology clients, discover ways to harness artificial intelligence for higher quality data in preclinical trials and translational research and discuss how deep learning augments workflows, providing quantifiable benefits from CRO to client.
