SMi is delighted to announce the 13th annual ADMET conference returning to London on the 9th - 10th July 2018.

Developments in ADMET and novel technologies determine the properties of a drug candidate in the preclinical stage of drug discovery. Poor ADMET properties are the principal cause for a candidate to fail at any stage of drug development. ADME-Toxicology and Pharmacokinetic studies are the key strategic check-points for pharmaceutical companies to reduce drug discovery cost, and minimise production times.

The growing use of ADMET technologies is driving the market growth, which is estimated to reach $14,319.9 Million by 2022, with a CAGR of 10.6% from 2016 to 2022*. The main objective of early prediction of ADME properties of a compound is to increase the success rate of it reaching the development stage.

9:10 Human PK and dose predictions for compounds with challenging physiochemical profiles

Peter Littlewood

Peter Littlewood, Director DMPK, Vertex Pharmaceuticals


• Understanding the physicochemical properties of a compound:  solubility, stability, form definition, solid-state properties, partition coefficient and ionization constants
• The optimization of these properties is fundamental to the drug discovery process, mainly due to their influence on absorption and distribution in vivo.
• Alterations of physicochemical properties such as molecular weight, log d, polar surface area or pKa may influence the absorption, distribution, metabolism or excretion (ADME) of a chemical series in a chemotype-dependent manner
• Application of mechanistic approaches to solving ADME issues provides insight as to why a change in properties causes a desired outcome in some cases, while leading to poorer outcomes in others.

11:00 In vitro and In silico tools to predict food-drug interactions

Neil John Parrott

Neil John Parrott, Modelling and Simulation Scientist, Roche Holding A G

• Pharmacokinetics of drugs can be affected by the physiological changes induced by a meal and so food-effect bioavailability studies are needed to support new drug applications
• The food effect is determined by a compound’s properties and physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) absorption models integrating drug-specific data are useful predictive tools.
• However regulators currently lack confidence in food effect predictions and cross industry alignment on best practice is needed to support wider confidence.
• A case study will illustrate preclinical and clinical impact for a Roche molecule.

14:00 intracellular pharmacokinetics: emerging opportunities for tailoring project support

Andreas Reichel

Andreas Reichel, VP, Head Research Pharmacokinetics, Bayer

WHAT IS CPD?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

GLOBAL CPD

Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.

CPD Certificates

We can provide a certificate for all our accredited events. To request a CPD certificate for a conference , workshop, master classes you have attended please email events@smi-online.co.uk
