Archived: VIRTUAL TRAINING EVENT | Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics (DMPK) in Drug Discovery

Date: 02 June - 03 June 2020

Location: Online Event

Tutors: Dr Bryan H. Norman

This is a VIRTUAL short course that will look at optimizing a drug metabolism profile as one of the most important actions in drug discovery. 

June 2,  3.00 – 4.30 pm (UK)  |  Session 1

June 3,  3.00 – 4.30 pm (UK) |  Session 2

This short course will describe the basic principles of pharmacokinetics, with specific emphasis on drug metabolism.  All of the primary metabolic enzymes, pathways and preferred drug substrates will be reviewed, along with informative case studies.  Drug metabolism-associated safety concerns, such as reactive metabolite formation and drug-drug interactions (DDIs) due to genetic polymorphisms and inhibition/activation of drug metabolizing enzymes will be discussed.  Common assessment and mitigation strategies for metabolism-related issues will also be reviewed.

When you register you will be sent links to join the on-line sessions. These will take place at the following time each day:

Who should attend this on line course:

This course is specifically designed for chemists.  Other members of cross-functional drug discovery teams, such as toxicologists, biologists, pharmacologists, pharmacokineticists and program managers may also gain valuable insights from the content.
