Drug discovery technology to realize new treatment concepts. Traditionally, the focus has been on low-molecular-weight compounds, but in recent years, new compto treatment methods such as antibody drugs, which have a large share of the new drug market, nucleic acid drugs, and regenerative medicine are coming into the world. In addition, digital medicines utilizing IoT technology are being implemented. In this session, venture companies working on new drug discovery utilizing nucleic acids and cells, and large companies that are beginning to work on healthcare using digital technology in addition to conventional drug discovery, will take the stage to explain the characteristics and actual conditions of their respective fields, and discuss the drugs that will play a role in future healthcare, while looking over these areas. The panelists will discuss the characteristics and actual conditions of each of these fields.


We will have a program of discussions among researchers, venture companies, and large corporations from various perspectives, not limited to the themes of this session.
