About this Event

Pharmahacking in Montreal

Following the success of the Pharmahackathon 2018, InVivo AI/StudentPharma are proud to partner with MILA to bring to you a three-day event filled with workshops, networking opportunities with industry leaders and experts and the chance to compete for prizes by applying Machine Learning/Deep Learning to solve current challenges in the pharmaceutical field!

Our goal is to foster an environment of innovation and collaboration by bringing in students and experts from multiple fields and allowing them to work together and bridge the gap between the pharmaceutical sciences and computer technologies.

For Learners

The following workshops will hosted by the McGill Initiative in Computational Medicine:

1) Introduction to Python
