Simcyp congratulates winners of the Annual Simcyp Academic Awards
Date: 03 Oct 2011
Simcyp is pleased to announce that the University of Gothenburg, Sweden and the University of Hawaii are joint winners of this year’s ‘Annual Simcyp Academic IVIVE Awards’ for ‘Most Informative Scientific Report’. The annual awards recognise cutting-edge published research in the fields of in vitro – in vivo extrapolation (IVIVE), ADME, pharmaceutics and modelling and simulation. The award acknowledges the following reports from the institutions:
- The University of Hawaii: ‘The development of UDP-glucuronosyltransferases 1A1 and 1A6 in the paediatric liver’. This report was published in the journal Drug Metabolism and Disposition: The Biological Fate of Chemicals. Please click here for further information.
- The University of Gothenburg: ‘In silico prediction of efavirenz and rifampacin drug-drug interaction considering weight and CYP2B6 phenotype’. This report was published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology’. Please click here for further information.
The winners were announced at the 12th Annual Simcyp Consortium Meeting which took place last week in Sheffield, UK. Dr Dinko Rekic from the University of Gothenburg was in attendance to collect an award which was presented by Professor Brian Houston of Simcyp's Scientific Advisory Board.
The University of Hawaii will be presented with their award at the Simcyp workshops in North Carolina in November. Both the winning groups will also be presenting at the upcoming Simcyp Virtual Seminar which supports the expanding use of the Simcyp Population-based Simulator by academic centres of excellence.
Winners receive a bursary which they can use towards computer hardware/software costs or a sabbatical at Simcyp to work with the Research and Development team on projects of mutual interest. All academic and not-for-profit research institutions holding Simcyp licenses are eligible to apply.
