Cancer Innovation Challenge at DataFest 19

10th April 2019


DataFest 19 was a two week festival of Data Innovation in Scotland  from 11 to 22 March 2019 showcasing Scotland’s role in data science and artificial intelligence. This year's theme focused on collaboration and doing #DataTogether as a community. The Cancer Innovation Challenge was delighted to be part of the fantastic Data Summit (the two-day flagship international conference held in Edinburgh) line up full of inspirational and thought provoking speakers and sesions covering a wide range of topics. 


Hosted by the Deputy Chief Medical Officer for Scotland, Dr Gregor Smith, the Cancer Innovation Challenge panel session on 21 March 2019 was an opportunity to hear about the collaborative stories behind the three Phase 2 companies from the Challenge two years after its launch at Data Summit 2017. The panel included Dr Anne Bruinvels, CEO and Founder of Px HealthCareDr Ken Sutherland, President of Canon Medical Research Europe and Dr Tim Williams, CEO and Co-Founder of My Clinical Outcomes. The panel was very positively received and afterwards, the Cancer Innovation Challenge had the opportunity to meet First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and tell her about the great work that the projects are doing.
