ADME (Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, and Excretion): Lead Characterization and Optimization

October 29, 2019

Introducing our newest CPRIT-funded GCC Center for Pharmacokinetics/Pharmacodynamics and Formulation (CCPF).  Sponsored by CPRIT, CCPF, and the GCC Innovative Drug Discovery and Development Consortium, this conference will include a “How-to” session on approaching PK (ADME)/PD and formulation studies.  Topics discussed will include protein:protein interactions, biologics, small molecules and examples of projects from users of the core.  Additional sessions will include experts who will cover IND-enabling studies and regulatory considerations, and industry professionals who will present on current state-of-the-art and how those boundaries are being pushed as we move into the future of drug development.
