The life sciences industry is constantly expanding and seeing breakthroughs and has always been dedicated to the improvement and safety of human, animal, and plant life. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, many industries were halted, or driven to a standstill. Life sciences was the industry at the forefront of the reaction and management of the virus and came together to research, study and find a vaccination. This has contributed to an awareness and demand for investments in the industry as the effects of the pandemic appear to become less impactful and more manageable.
Consequently, discoveries and investments into the industry are widely appreciated now and trends and innovations are developing. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning has a lot of potential within the industry and is being leveraged at all stages of research and development.
