Bursaries available for poster presentations at Tokyo workshops and seminars
Date: 06 Oct 2008
Due to the popularity of our hands-on workshops, and the increase in demand we have seen for recent events, we are advising that people book early for the Tokyo event in December 2008. To further promote scientific discussions, we will now be hosting poster sessions at the event. A limited number of bursaries are available to delegates who present a poster.
To be considered for a poster presentation, please submit an abstract at the time of registration*. Successful applications will then receive a 40% registration discount.
In addition to the prestigious list of speakers already confirmed for this event, we hope to welcome Dr Gerhard Gross (AstraZeneca) who will present the industry’s view on the recent US FDA guidance in relation to DDI at transporter level (this is subject to confirmation).
The seminar day, which will be opened by Professor Yuichi Sugiyama and Toshihisa Ishikawa, will provide an excellent opportunity for informal discussion with invited experts in the field. Confirmed speakers include:
Professor Yuichi Sugiyama, University of Tokyo
‘Extrapolation and scaling of in vitro data to whole organ PBPK model: Application to drugs showing transporter-mediated distribution and clearance’
Professor Toshihisa Ishikawa, Tokyo Institute of Technology
‘Pharmacogenomics and QSAR analysis of human ABC transporter ABCG2’
Dr Sibylle Neuhoff, Simcyp Limited
‘Cell culture assays - use and abuse’
Professor Teruo Murakami, Hiroshima University
'Involvement of efflux transporters in the intestinal absorption of various drugs.'
Dr Ryusuke Takano, Chugai Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd
‘Oral absorption of poorly water-soluble drugs: Computer simulation of fraction absorbed’
Dr Karen Rowland-Yeo, Simcyp Limited
‘Best use of in vitro data together with IVIVE to satisfy regulatory requirements for DDIs’
Professor Hiroshi Yamazaki, Showa University
‘Combining the Two New Technologies: IVIVE Meets Microdosing’
Dr Shin-ichi Inoue, Daiichi-Sankyo
‘Risk assessment of DDI caused by metabolism-based CYP inhibition in the early stages of drug discovery’
Dr Hisakazu Ohtani, University of Tokyo
‘Making better use of in vitro information in tailoring individualised dose in clinical setting’
Professor Amin Rostami, University of Sheffield
‘Recognising covariates of PK: bottom-up vs. top-down’
The workshops cover general aspects of IVIVE and will benefit individuals working in the areas of pharmacology, pharmacokinetics and pharmaceutics, as well as modelling and simulation. Although the programme is sponsored by Simcyp, it is not limited to those who use the Simcyp Simulator platform.
You can register for individual events, or for the whole programme:
• Hands-on workshop on the 'Concepts of IVIVE' - 8th - 9th December 2008
• Seminar: 'Optimizing the use and interpretation of in vitro ADME studies' - 10th December 2008
• Hands-on workshop on the 'Applications of IVIVE' - 11th - 12th December 2008
The deadline for early registration is 20th October 2008. Registration requests received after this date will be charged at the standard registration rate. For further information and a link to our online booking form please click here.* Posters should cover relevant ADME and PKPD related issues that have implications for in vitro – in vivo extrapolation and modelling & simulation. Posters that have been presented at recent events or published as full papers will also be considered.
