The 39th National Conference of the Italian Society of Pharmacology (SIF) was held in Florence on November 20th-23rd 2019. The event was the occasion to enrich the knowledge and skills on the world of pharmaceuticals that is on constant evolution.
Research methodologies have changed radically compared to the past and there are thousands of new potential drugs in preclinical and clinical development. It is key to promote clinical research and innovation in order to guarantee the access to new and innovative medicines for the whole population. Personalization of therapies and precision medicine are rapidly developing. Moreover, big data, artificial intelligence and digitization are changing the drug development process.
Lucia Ruggieri, from Gianni Benzi Foundation, took part in the SIF conference presenting a poster focused on the EPTRI project entitled “Basic science to support paediatric clinical research – the European Paediatric Translational Research Infrastructure (ID-EPTRI) experience”. In brief, the poster described the identification process of the 4 scientific domains of the EPTRI platform and discussed how to build the community able to deliver services and technologies in the framework of the future research infrastructure.
