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 The collegial nature of this conference, and the opportunity to learn, discuss unpublished research, share ideas, and establish collaborations, have made this venue a favorite in the drug metabolism community.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 Each presentation will include unpublished data and expert opinions to stimulate audience discussion.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.
