Data as the New Currency

Super Session 1

11:15 - 12:30Plenary Room

In the Nordics, we are sitting on a vast number of viable data sources – and data, as we know, is key to our industry’s ability to thrive. As such, we must cooperate to better align, integrate, and use our data sources in a protected and patient-centric way that also supports industry participation. In this session, we look at examples of successful collaboration models, at how data helps to drive the value of an asset, at the importance of industry, and at the reciprocal requirement to address and articulate societal value.

Microbiome: The New Genetics?

Super Session 2

13:45 - 15:00Plenary Room

The human microbiome is considered to be a counterpart to the human genome, with the number of genes in our microbiome outnumbering the genes in our genome by 100 to 1. We also know that understanding and thus balancing our microbiome is vital to human health, and that our microbes are impacted on a community rather than individual-level. In this session, we will hear from some of the world’s leaders on the state of microbiome research, as well as how research findings are impacting our approach to disease development and treatment.

Breaking Industry Barriers

Fireside Chats

Diseases of Aging

Super Session 3

15:30 - 16:30Plenary Room

By 2030, the population is expected to exceed 8.5 billion, with some countries preparing for an average life expectancy of 90+ years. Increasing age is partnered with a growing prevalence of non-communicable diseases and chronic conditions. Likewise, the demographic shift comes with exponential costs to the health care system and societal challenges for how to spend additional years in declining health. In this session, we look at some of the global and Nordic leaders across aging-related fields, how they are tackling these issues, and what is still needed for longevity to equate quality of life.

From Population to Precision

Super Session 5

11:15 - 12:30Plenary Room

Tackling global health challenges requires that we move from ‘reactive’ to  ‘proactive’ care, and that we personalize our approach. The practice of evidence-based medicine and the continued identification of new biomarkers are vital steps in improving disease diagnosis, improving the safety and efficacy of existing medicines, and in developing new medicines and targeted therapies. In this session, we discuss the needs and challenges from both industry and financial viewpoints.
