At the world’s pharma and biotech companies, artificial intelligence is increasingly critical to the drug discovery engine. A 2019 survey by the Pistoia Alliance found that 70% of life science researchers use AI, including machine and deep learning, in their work, up from 44% just two years earlier. But where along the road to a new drug will AI have the most impact? During this panel discussion experts from leading companies in the field will discuss and examine the hope and the hype--and what scientists need to know to understand what’s next.

Linnea is honored to present two experts in cannabis extracts and cannabidiol who will clarify these natural ingredients’ potential. Since ancient times, cannabis’ therapeutic benefits have been recognized, yet in the early 20th century, the plant became controversial and was subjected to legal restrictions. The bans are now being lifted, allowing research to proceed on cannabis’ effectiveness in treating diseases and symptoms.

Linnea’s brand Theca is conducting research into this rediscovered plant. The company has decades of experience in the herbal extracts market, processing natural ingredients for the pharmaceutical industry. This knowledge is proving an enormous benefit as we delve into this cutting-edge field. We are committed to standardization for ensuring that our high-quality products are safe and effective.

Our guests will detail the latest research findings. MD Leticia CuÑetti Delmonte, an associate professor of pharmacology and therapeutics at the Uruguay School of Medicine, will present data on the use of standardized cannabis extracts. PhD Marianne Uggen Rasmussen, will give a comprehensive overview of pure cannabidiol’s application and research results in northern European countries.
