Simcyp to host workshop at European ISSX conference
Date: 12 Mar 2008
In addition to hosting four intensive interactive workshops in 2008, it has now been confirmed that Simcyp scientists will be joining academic tutors to deliver a short course at the 10th European ISSX meeting.
The conference of the International Society for the Study of Xenobiotics (ISSX) is being held in Vienna, Austria, from 18-21st May 2008. The focus of the meeting is 'From microsomes via mice to man: Drug development in the 21st century.’
Simcyp is sponsoring a half-day workshop scheduled for the afternoon of Sunday 18th May. This interactive course will focus specifically on in vitro-in vivo extrapolation (IVIVE) of metabolic drug clearance. Participants will undertake practical, problem-solving exercises using Microsoft Excel.
As usual, the workshop will be led by Amin Rostami-Hodjegan, supported by expert tutors from Simcyp and academia, including Brain Houston (University of Manchester), Philippe Beaune (University of Paris), John Miners (Flinders University), Markus Grube (University of Greifswald) and Hartmut Glaeser (University of Erlangen).
This short course will be ideal for those who were unable to book on our intensive, four day workshops on the concepts and applications of IVIVE of ADME properties, in Arosa, Switzerland. For more details about the Arosa workshop and other Simcyp events, please see our workshops page.
Online registration for the ISSX conference closes on 24th April 2008. Please click here for a link to the conference website.
