2017 Winter Symposium: "We’re not alone – our human microbiota in health, therapy and drug development".

  • Solutions Center at Research Triangle Park (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Abstract: The resident digestive-tract microbes of humans and other mammals are collectively referred to as the gut microbiota (or “microbiome”). There is great diversity in the gut microbiota, and collectively these microbes have been referred to as an additional “organ” that influences human health, metabolism, nutrition, physiology, immune function and drug disposition. Similar to the homeostatic pressures that maintains mammalian organ systems and host health, homeostasis between the host and gut microbiota is similarly under tight control to maintain the health of each respective system. When this biochemical and physical interaction is perturbed, the host’s health is compromised. Dysbiosis has been associated with several disease states including irritable bowel syndrome, obesity and type II diabetes, and autism to name a few. Significant research has been vested to understand the broad scope of the host-microbiota symbiosis including microbial biochemical fingerprints indicative of health or disease, microbial contributions to metabolism, pharmacokinetics and toxicities of oral therapeutics, detrimental effects of antimicrobial drugs on healthy microbiota, restoration of homeostasis and health by therapeutic modulation of the microbiota, , and microbiota metabolite characterization to create novel therapeutics. Understanding the role of microbial metabolism in health, disease and drug metabolism requires diverse perspectives and novel approaches in order to ultimately impact human and mammalian health and improve therapeutic efficacy.

Registration opens at 9:00 am; cost is $85 ($45 for pre- and post-doctoral students). First year pre-doctoral students attend free of charge. Reservations will not be accepted at the door. Reservations must be made in advance by sending confirmation/payment to Lucie Langevin by email at rtpdmdg.owner@rtpdmdg.org or by mail to PO Box 13864, RTP, NC 27709.

Reservations must be received by Tuesday, February 28th; cancellations will not be accepted thereafter.

 Reservations will be confirmed by return email; payment is expected unless a cancellation confirmation is received by the RTP-DMDG by Thursday, February 28th

 Make checks payable to the “RTP DMDG” in advance (preferred) or at the meeting.

 Credit card payments can be made at the following site at a slightly higher meeting cost, $88 ($47 for pre- and post-doctoral students)

University of Rhode Island College of Pharmacy 4th Annual Transporters in Drug Discovery and Development: Driving Knowledge from Laboratory to Label Course

The University of Rhode Island College of Pharmacy announces the 4th Annual Transporters in Drug Discovery and Development: Driving Knowledge from Laboratory to Label (TDDD 2016), an intensive three-day training course in drug transport to be held August 1-3, 2016 at the University of Rhode Island College of Pharmacy in Kingston, Rhode Island.
This high level workshop delivers current knowledge about drug transporters with industry perspective.  TDDD2016 is presented by expert instructors in the evolving area of transporters and their impact on drug disposition and absorption. We are pleased that our program will feature an FDA expert speaker and have hands on training sessions.  TDD2016 program faculty:
Ayman El-Kattan, PhD, Pfizer
Yurong Lai, M.D., PhD, Bristol Meyers Squibb
Angela Slitt, PhD, University of Rhode Island
Manthena Varma, PhD, Pfizer
Ping Zhao, PhD, Bethesda, MD


How are the workshops run?
The course is composed of lectures delivered by leading experts in the field of transporters and provides in-depth overview of various topics presented. It is also mixed with a small group exercises with an expert tutor, where students will be presented with industry relevant examples to integrate acquired knowledge.


What are the benefits?
By the end of workshop, students will understand the role of transporters in drug disposition, physicochemical properties needed for NMEs to avoid or be substrates for various transporters. Students will also learn how to interpret data generated in in vitro/in vivo settings. The course will provide a better understanding of the recent FDA and EMA regulations and how to put them in context from drug development setting. This course will also provide an overview on approaches to characterize the potential for transporters mediated drug-drug interaction using both static and dynamic mechanistic/ whole-body PBPK modeling.

Registration and program information can be found online at:
web.uri.edu/pharmacy/cpd/drugtransporters/

Due to generous program sponsors, a few full fellowships (registration, meals and lodging) are available. If you would like to apply for one of the fellowships, please email Dr. Angela Slitt at: angela_slitt@uri.edu<mailto:angela_slitt@uri.edu>.

2016 Gordon Research Conferences

The 21st century approach to discovering highly selective medicines and developing treatment strategies and therapeutic regimens for individual patients is undergoing revolutionary changes. Industry, academic and regulatory scientists with interests in drug metabolism, transporters, pharmacokinetics and related disciplines will gather at the 46th Drug Metabolism Gordon Research Conference to explore exciting new frontiers in the quest to achieve more precise tailoring of medicines. Young investigators, including postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, will interact with academic and industry thought leaders in an informal setting. The collegial nature of this conference, and the opportunity to learn, discuss unpublished research, share ideas, and establish collaborations, have made this venue a favorite in the drug metabolism community. The 2016 conference will focus on transformative approaches in the discovery and development of targeted therapies for inherited and acquired diseases, and advances in assessing disease treatment and predicting optimal therapy and regimens from a DMPK perspective. Sessions will include advances in endogenous biomarkers, orphan P450s, designing targeted covalent inhibitors, drug transporters, pharmacokinetic strategies, renal models, and challenges in the precision medicine era. Each presentation will include unpublished data and expert opinions to stimulate audience discussion. Attendees are encouraged to submit posters. The Wednesday evening program features oral presentations by young investigators selected from the submitted posters. With scientific sessions in the mornings and evenings, the afternoons are set aside for attendees to enjoy the many outdoor recreational activities in the New Hampshire area. Afternoon "traditions" of this conference include an Academia vs. Industry softball game (no experience necessary!), and hiking and kayaking/canoeing outings in the White Mountains. The registration fee includes all meals and housing on the picturesque Holderness School campus. We hope that you will join us for an outstanding meeting focused on rapidly advancing frontiers in drug metabolism science as we deliver on the promise of precision medicine!

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 12, 2016. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the Conference Chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.
