22nd EuroQSAR
Sep 16-20, 2018

Thessaloniki, Greece

22nd EuroQSAR

The European Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationships (EuroQSAR) Symposia are major scientific events that have been organized in different cities of Europe since 1973. They have the fascinating scope to promote and disseminate advances in rational approaches in drug design and discovery and ensure a worldwide attendance of prominent scientists from both academia and industry.
The 22nd EuroQSAR 2018 symposium, entitled “Translational and Health Informatics: Implications for Drug Discovery”, will take place September 16-20, 2018 in Thessaloniki, Greece. It is a Turkish-Greek co-organization and an EFMC sponsored event.
To honor his impact of his contributions in the field of computer-aided drug discovery (CADD) and QSAR, the 22 nd EuroQSAR Symposium is dedicated to the memory of Prof. Toshio Fujita (1929-2017).

Final IMI OrBiTo Meeting
Sep 17-18, 2018

Cambridge, UK

Final IMI OrBiTo Meeting

The APS is pleased to announce this exciting 2 day meeting to review the progress and advances made by the collaborative IMI OrBiTo project . The OrBiTo project started in October 2012 and following a twelve-month non-cost extension phase will finish in October 2018.
The Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) ORBITO project is a pre-competitive collaboration between pharma, academia and specialist technology companies which aims to enhance our understanding of how orally-administered drugs are absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and apply this knowledge to develop new in vitro tests and in silico models that will better predict the performance of oral formulations in patients (www.orbitoproject.eu).

The German Society for Rheumatology 46th Congress
Sep 19-22, 2018

Mannheim, Germany

The German Society for Rheumatology 46th Congress

At our congress, we want to provide a forum for this change. All those who deal with and live in rheumatology, scientifically, clinically or otherwise, should benefit from the experience of others and be actively involved in shaping our field of expertise. At the same time, the progress of other disciplines is valuable and instructive. The many intersections with orthopedics and orthopedic rheumatology and their focal point arthritis are important to us. In the preparation we want to include as many active designers of the next generation of rheumatologists and scientists.

ISSX Workshop on LC-MS Proteomics
Sep 27-28, 2018

Cambridge, Massachusetts

ISSX Workshop on LC-MS Proteomics

For in vitro-in vivo extrapolation (IVIVE) of drug absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion (ADME), pharmacodynamics (PD) and drug-drug interactions (DDI), quantitative systems pharmacology (QSP) models, including physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) models, rely heavily on physiological parameters, such as the abundance of proteins in tissues important in these processes. A significant obstacle in quantification of the abundance of ADME and PD proteins is that conventional methods (e.g. Western blotting) cannot be used when purified standards of these proteins (e.g. transporters, receptors) are not available. Moreover, these conventional methods lack specificity, are low throughput and cumbersome. The advent of quantitative proteomics (QPr), based on LC-MS/MS, has overcome many of these disadvantages. Though this approach is increasingly being adopted by many laboratories, differences in its implementation have led to large differences in the reported abundance of ADME proteins.

GastroPlus™ 2-Day Training Workshop
Sep 27-28, 2018

Mumbai, India

GastroPlus™ 2-Day Training Workshop

This 2-day hands-on course will provide an in-depth knowledge of the theories and application of state-of-the-art simulation and modeling software as it applies to problems facing pharmaceutical scientists dealing with drug product effects on dissolution, absorption and pharmacokinetics. Focus will be placed on applications of this technology as it relates to issues defined in the FDA’s Critical Path Initiative. A combination of presentations and interactive examples, taken from actual industry experience, will illustrate how to recognize and deal with the multiple interacting phenomena that affect the dissolution, absorption and pharmacokinetics of particular drugs, dosing routes, and dosage forms.
