ACCP Fundamentals Tutorial Icon
Part 1: Introduction to Microbiome & the Impact on Drug Disposition & Variability


This is Part 1 of a 3-part webinar series. Attendees that complete all three components will be awarded a certificate of completion highlighting the skills you have obtained.

In addition to the one hour lecture, there will be a 30 minute Faculty on Focus event where Faculty Speakers will be available for Q&A from Attendees! This is a rare opportunity to get direct access to the Faculty Speakers to get in-depth answers and clarification on the topics discussed during the webinar. The Fundamentals Tutorials - Clinical Applications Webinar Series provides a clinical pharmacology focused program which is relevant at every stage of your career! 

Target Audience: Professionals in academic, pharmaceutical/private sector, and regulatory settings involved in drug disposition and/or development. In addition, students of graduate and professional doctorate programs.

Session Description: The gut microbiome has emerged as a contributor to drug action and variability. Genes encoding organisms in the human gut microbiome far outnumber human germline genes. The diverse gut microbiome and factors such as diet and immune function contribute to differences in drug disposition and response. This session will provide an introduction of the gut microbiome highlighting direct and indirect metabolism of select drugs. In addition, the impact of the gut microbiome on current drug development strategies will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this program, learners will be able to:

  1. Learn about the impact of the gut microbiome of drug disposition impacting individual response.
  2. Compare and contrast between direct and indirect metabolism effects of the gut microbiome for select drugs.
  3. Learn how the gut microbiome impacts current drug development strategies.

Faculty Speakers:

  • Shirley M. Tsunoda, PharmD, Professor of Clinical Pharmacy, Univ of California San Diego Skaggs School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences
  • Alexander J. Prokopienko, PharmD, PhD, Senior Clinical Pharmacologist, Takeda Pharmaceuticals USA Inc
