Create solutions to challenges that are faced in the pharmaceutical industry

The student-run organization “Student Pharma” is pleased to offer you the chance to participate in a FREE three-day hackathon event.

With the help of our partners and sponsors, InVivo AI, Novartis, Boehringer Ingelheim, and Mila, we have some exciting problems to propose to our competitors.

Teams can compete to propose ideas using Machine Learning/Deep Learning to solve current problems in the pharmaceutical industry.

Whether you come to compete for a prize or come to simply exercise your creativeness and network with industry experts, there is something to be found for anyone that can code or has a keen interest in the biomedical field!

For those who would like to simply brush up on their coding skills, there are workshops available as well.

We invite you to visit our Eventbrite page to find out more details!
