Dr Aleksandra Galetin University of Manchester
‘Extrapolation of in vitro drug clearance by glucuronidation and sulphation to in vivo’
Professor Alexander Vinks Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center
‘Pharmacometric applications to immunosuppressive therapy in pediatric patients - bridging the knowledge gap’
Professor Arto Urtti University of Helsinki
‘Transport QSARs - possibilities and limitations in PK predictions’
Dr Don Mattison National Institutes of Health, HHS

The seminar day coincides with Simcyp’s 20th interactive workshop event focusing on the optimal use and interpretation of in vitro data. These up-to-date courses cover the concepts and applications of in vitro – in vivo extrapolation (IVIVE) of ADME properties and are relevant to scientists working the areas of pharmacology, pharmacokinetics and pharmaceutics, as well as modelling and simulation.
