Instem Scientific – “Good balance of technical and scientific talks” 2012 ADMET
London (PRWEB UK) 13 June 2013
In less than 3 weeks, the highly anticipated Europe's leading ADMET conference will return to London with a two day content packed agenda featuring over 12 leading Pharma speakers within the field of ADMET. The event will provide the perfect platform to hear innovative presentation on themes including Predictive ADME, Screening Approaches, Pre-clinical Screening Approaches, and Predictive Toxicology, emerging issues such as regulatory changes and Drug-Drug interactions.
According to Alan Boobis, Professor of Biochemical Pharmacology, Imperial College London chairman on day one “Toxicology is undergoing a profound change. The dramatic advances in biology, technology, computing and mathematical analysis are being used to develop novel strategies for toxicity assessment. However, we are currently in a phase of transition, and it is not yet clear which approaches will advance drug development and which will hinder it.”
18 speakers from industry’s leading Pharma organisations will deliver case-studies and examine how new strategies in ADME impact drug discovery, development, safety and most importantly the subsequent clinical implications. Attendees will hear the latest on predictive toxicology, genotoxicity and metabolic toxicity, which will be addressed by organisations include: GlaxoSmithKline, Novo Nordisk, Sanofi-Aventis, Imperial College London and more.
A half day workshop on the 9th July will focus on Predictive Toxicology: Advantages and Limitations of In vitro and Computational methods will be lead by Mark Graham, Independent Drug Safety/Toxicology Consultant, MG Consulting (Former AstraZeneca Global Head).

- Alan Boobis, Professor of Biochemical Pharmacology, Imperial College London
