CPhI North America 2019 Conference Review

Pharma industry leaders gather annually at CPhI North America to discuss pharmaceutical manufacturing, outsourcing, R&D, drug delivery and supply chain related topics for small and large molecule finished drugs as well as advancements in bio-manufacturing.

2019 Keynote Presentations Included

Senator Jeff Flake

Join our April 30 keynote presentation at CPhI North America to hear Senator Jeff Flake’s opinions on pharma manufacturing, healthcare innovation, and the direction of healthcare as he sees it under our current structure of divided government, as well as scenarios beyond 2020.

Jeff Flake has nearly two decades of experience on Capitol Hill in both the Senate and House of Representatives. Heralded as an "ideal public servant" in The New York Times, Flake is renowned for his bravery in speaking out against the current administration, his principled stands on spending and free trade, and his shrewd negotiations and bipartisanship on complicated issues such as immigration.

Brandon Allgood

Join our May 1 keynote presentation, to hear Brandon Allgood, CTO and cofounder of Numerate's perspective on artificial intelligence, the future of machine learning and why the drug industry needs to take notice.

Brandon Allgood manages the development and application of Numerate's AI platform and is responsible for Numerate’s technological vision. Brandon has also served as Director of Computational Science at Numerate and as a Research Scientist at Pharmix. He received a B.S. in Physics from the University of Washington, Seattle, and a Ph.D. in Computational Physics from the University of California, Santa Cruz. Brandon has authored scientific publications in astrophysics, solid-state physics, and computational biology and has 15 years of experience in large scale cloud and distributed computing, AI, and mathematical modeling. He is a member of the Forbes Technology Council and is a UCSC Foundation Trustee.
