  • AI-Powered Solutions in Healthcare: A Precision Medicine Approach to Cancer Therapy

    In line with Singapore’s National Artificial Intelligence (AI) strategy, a study done in 2018 found that healthcare professionals in Singapore were found to be ranked third globally when it comes to using AI for clinical diagnosis. However, more healthcare innovators and practitioners are now pushing the limits to what AI in the healthcare industry can do. With the development of novel AI models for disease prediction and management, companies have shown that through innovation and collaboration, there is an opportunity for AI to be a useful tool in more ways than one.
    One avenue that AI in healthcare has shown promise in is in immunotherapy for cancer treatment. AI platforms have shown promise when it comes to site activation, rapid identification as well as drug screening and discovery. With cancer cases rising over the years in Singapore and other countries around the world, such platforms could give healthcare professionals an edge in the global fight against cancer.
    At this session, we look at how AI-powered solutions could be used to address major challenges in drug discovery and precision medicine. Join us at our event as we hear from industry experts on how the healthcare industry could leverage AI platforms in immunotherapy and how this could be a potential game-changer for cancer therapy.

  • Improving Respiratory Health With Collaborative Research and Innovation

    Chronic respiratory diseases account for four million deaths annually, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO) who has made the prevention, control and cure for respiratory diseases a top health priority. As most chronic respiratory disorders are under-diagnosed and under-treated, a global collaborative effort will be needed to improve medical care for those afflicted with respiratory diseases.

  • Microbes as Therapeutics

    The importance of the microbiome to human health has gradually been elucidated in recent years. The collective activities of the microbes – their metabolism, their interactions among different species, and their interactions with the host's immune system – play important roles in maintaining the health status of multiple systems, including the gastrointestinal, metabolic, and the neurological systems. Since the early 2000s, there had been multiple startups and non-profit clinical projects investigating the use of microbiome components as therapeutics for various diseases. With the development of synthetic biology, novel methods of applying genetically engineered microbes to specifically target certain disease mechanisms are also being developed.
