2022 ACCP Trends in Drug Development Seminar | September 24, 2022 | Bethesda N Marriot Hotel & Conf Ctr

ACCP Trends in Drug Development iconThe 2022 ACCP Trends in Drug Development Seminar addresses cutting-edge topics in preclinical and clinical drug development relevant to clinical pharmacologists primarily working in industry. The diverse Faculty Speakers are experts in their respective research area and will provide a current perspective on research and development, including applications relevant to the drug development process and other pertinent elements of clinical pharmacology. The topics are specifically tailored to current developments including dose determination from preclinical pharmacokinetic/ pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) studies, repurposing of drugs for new formulations or indications using 505(b)(2), novel & decentralized clinical study designs and novel partial opioid receptor agonists with improved safety profile.

Goals & Objectives

  • Identify new innovations in drug development and regulatory science that are relevant to advancing patient care;
  • Define novel drug development approaches and their utilization in clinical pharmacology to advance targeted pharmacotherapy;
  • Describe emerging trends in the application of PK/PD studies for dose estimation of biological agents for therapeutic and preventive use;
  • Explore ways in which cutting-edge clinical pharmacology science contributes to improved patient outcomes.
