15th Annual Drug Discovery
Innovation Forum 2024

For the patients, we must do better.




“Our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas, to remain vigilant and to face the challenge of change.” – Martin Luther King ...

For the patients, we must do better.

4th & 5th September 2024

Berlin, Germany

DDIF was formed 15 years ago and our mission remains the same - to push boundaries to affect change, for patients.

To continue this statement - drug discovery and development must evolve and innovate towards new modes of action. Embrace next-generation technology such as ML, AR, Generative AI, LLM and so forth. There is no avoiding it. To truly reduce drug discovery time and accelerate clinical trial development, we must advance towards digital transformation and break down silos and barriers we often create ourselves.
