In Silico Pharmaceutical and Consumer Healthcare Conference

June 26, 2024

Hinxton Hall, Cambridge, UK

The 2024 In Silico Pharmaceutical and Consumer Healthcare Conference

Join us in Cambridge on June 26th to see how pharmaceutical industry leaders leverage in silico approaches to address the unsustainable cost and time required to develop drug manufacturing, production scale, and drug delivery processes. 

  • Gain insight into in silico methodology and how engineering simulation and mechanistic modeling is accelerating innovation in healthcare and pharma
  • Hear from leading industry speakers showcasing their use of Ansys simulation in process engineering and drug delivery
  • Share experiences, knowledge, and best practices with industry peers
  • Discuss your simulation challenges with Ansys experts
  • Participate and engage in interactive networking opportunities

The In Silico Pharmaceutical and Consumer Healthcare Conference aims to celebrate engineering achievements by illuminating what's possible through simulation. Discover the tools to optimize processes faster and with greater efficiency. And be inspired to design, build, and work in new ways that make your breakthrough ideas a reality.

How to get to Hinxton Hall:

By Car:  

Arriving from the south:
Leave the M11 at junction 9 (signed A11 Newmarket) and take the first exit signed A1301 towards Cambridge. From the roundabout take the first left (about 800 m). At the next small roundabout follow the signpost left for the ‘Genome Campus’.

Arriving from the north:
Leave the M11 at junction 10 (note that M11 junction 9 is restricted and only accessible from the South). Turn left at the roundabout and straight over the next roundabout. Travel a mile or so on the A505 in the direction of Saffron Walden. At the next roundabout take the third exit (signed A1301 towards Saffron Walden). Pass two turnings to Hinxton village (these go to the village only), and take a right, at the next roundabout, signposted on to the Genome Campus.

Parking: Parking is available on-site with 150 spaces. Please note: parking is not exclusive to the event.

By air:
London Stansted Airport is the closest airport to Campus at only 20 minutes drive.

London Stansted: 20 Minutes
London Luton: 1 hour
London City: 1 hour
Heathrow: 1.5 hours
Gatwick 1.5 hours

By Train:  
Whittlesford Parkway, Great Chesterford and Audley End are the closest railway stations to the Campus and these are all on the Cambridge-London Liverpool Street line. The journey time from London is approximately one hour.

Cambridge is the closest railway hub, it is on both the London King’s Cross and the London Liverpool Street line, and also serves trains coming from the north.
