For the last 10 years, over 100 projects of the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) have been carrying out amazing work to speed up the development of innovative medicines and transform medical research. For that reason, IMI is organizing a 10th-anniversary scientific symposium, where young scientists from IMI projects will present their sterling work. The symposium will take place on 22 and 23 October 2018 in Brussels. It will feature more than 80 poster displays, over 25 oral presentations, and several interesting panels on topics ranging from personalised medicine to patient-centric approaches in drug development. With 53 partners, 27 Associated Members and a budget of 40 million euros, HARMONY is IMI's largest big data project, and we are proud to be part of the IMI family.
