This meeting will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas between principal members of the DMPK research community. Keynote talks from thought leaders in industry and academia will provide global perspectives on how DMPK can bring value to the process on informing drug discovery and development. A range of ‘hot topics’ will be discussed, with a key theme being the central importance of understanding and harnessing underpinning chemical concepts. The emphasis will be on building dialogue between participants, who will range from experienced project/laboratory leaders to early-career researchers. There will be a balanced mix of oral and poster presentations, interactive Q&A sessions and networking opportunities throughout.
Who should attend
Medicinal chemists, drug discovery scientists, pharmacologists, toxicologists, DMPK scientists – from academia, industry, and third sector institutions.
