Chair invitation for ADMET 2018 sneak peek:

“This year features an array of presentations exploring novel technologies, specific case studies and PK modelling strategies in the areas of DMPK, PBPK, PKPD and toxicology. This important conference is specifically designed to help all of us to both keep abreast of innovations across the field and to better anticipate and be pro-active in shaping the future.”

Interview Snapshot:

What do you see as the greatest research challenge to overcome in the field at the moment?

“Developing novel medicines that benefit patients will also be challenging.  As novel targeted approaches are being developed, new challenges constantly arise, and it is difficult to stay updated on all these issues. This is why smaller venues for scientific interactions like the ADMET conference was prove extremely valuable.”

This year’s two-day conference will provide attendees with unparalleled in-depth discussions about the challenges and opportunities associated with the optimisation of ADMET modeling techniques, preclinical DMPK applications and development of biopharmaceuticals. In addition to this, attendees will have the opportunity to meet and network with a room full of internationally renowned, industry experts and develop relationships and connections that will help propel the science and technology behind ADMET forward.
