British Association for Cancer Research w/ Nathan Brown

  • The Francis Crick Institute London (map)

Nathan Brown, Head of Cheminformatics at BenevolentAI will be participating to a discussion at the Francis Crick Institute around “the challenges preventing Cancer cure”

The aim of the discussion is to understand the different perspectives on cancer medicine and research, present and future. The discussion will also focus on the perspectives artificial intelligence will bring on the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, and also on the the development of therapies.

We share the summary of the discussion afterwards. Stay tuned.
