Event Location Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa
San Diego, California
DescriptionThis year’s meeting is focused on Emerging Technologies in Clinical Pharmacology. Consistent with ACCP’s commitment to excellence in science and education, the 2017 Annual Meeting Program Committee, co-chaired by Drs. Catherine Sherwin and Gilbert Burckart, has worked diligently to provide a diverse and exceptional educational program that meets the needs of healthcare professionals and scientists with an interest in one or more of the myriad of applications of clinical pharmacology ranging from research and drug development to patient care. Speakers spanning the breadth of academia, pharmaceutical industry, regulatory agencies, consulting companies and clinical specialties will present educational and scientific programs organized into topic tracks that allow attendees to uniquely tailor content selection to their individual interests.

On Saturday, September 16th, four Pre-meeting Workshops will cover topics such as the labeling of off-patent medications for pediatric use, perspectives on physiologically-based pharmacokinetic modeling for labeling initiatives, therapeutic drug monitoring in advancing patient care and strategies for dose selection of therapies used in different areas of oncology. The 3-day meeting will begin with a Plenary Session on Predicting Pharmacokinetics/Pharmacodynamics in the Individual Patient: Separating Reality from Hype by Leslie Z. Benet, PhD, Professor, Univ of California, San Francisco, and continue with a mixture of several shorter Symposia combined with our traditional four-hour educational format. Major clusters of topic areas include: drug development – innovative approaches to post-marketing surveillance, master protocols, the path forward after a failed primary endpoint assessment, early phase study designs, modeling of adherence, challenges and opportunities of inhaled medicines and HIV/AIDS in the 21st century; pediatrics - clinical trial simulations, efficacy of antiepileptic drugs for specific indications, drug effect on pediatric bone health, therapeutic options for the treatment of obesity and the use of kinase inhibitors in pediatric patients; pharmacometrics – optimizing dosage and frequency; and clinical – the next wave of cancer therapies and the highly-anticipated Tuesday afternoon events on the evolving science of biosimilars and the opioid abuse and misuse epidemic. The Keynote Address will be delivered by William E. Evans, PharmD, Faculty Member, Endowed Chair in Pharmacogenomics, St Jude Children’s Research Hosp.

A series of special Student, Trainee & Young Professional-focused programs are planned that provide exposure to innovative science and career development opportunities.

Poster Sessions held on Sunday and Monday evening will focus on new findings and preliminary data presented by a wide spectrum of attendees.

Enjoy the chance to socialize and network at the catered receptions during the Poster Sessions, at twice-daily tea/coffee breaks and at the Lunch & Awards Sessions on Sunday and Monday.
