Discussing “Laboratory miniaturization hand in hand with Microfabrication and Nanotechnology – systems integration at the microscale “with Dr. Vania Silverio of INESC-MN, Portugal.

Dr. Vania Silverio is a Microfluidics architect with strong background in microengineering. She combines know-how in simulation, design and fabrication of micron-sized fluidic paths with the integration of sensing and actuation elements towards the miniaturization of laboratories. Dr. Silverio is the Leader of the Microfluidics group at INESC Microsystems and Nanotechnologies (INESC MN) providing modular microfluidic solutions. She is Invited Assistant Professor at the Physics Department of Instituto Superior Tecnico (IST), ULisboa where, among others, she is the responsible for the curricular course on Microfluidics, unique in Portugal. She supervises…

Technologies Transforming Real-World Evidence (RWE) Evidence in the Pharmaceutical Industry

As new drugs are emerging every day, it is very important to ensure that the patients get right and effective treatment. One such step can be taken from Real World Evidence (RWE). In simple words, Real World Evidence means data and information collected outside of a clinical trial. This data can be electronic medical records, medical charts or other medical claims to assess patient outcomes. It is made sure that the patient’s identity is removed from the previous data to maintain the patient’s privacy. However, today’s real-world evidence data is…
