Mini Symposium Innovative Analytical Approaches in ADME
Analytical research in Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism and Excretion (ARIADME) is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie initial training network, which aims to build individual training paths for a new generation of young scientist in the field of ADME. A group of 13 PhD researches, who were enrolled in the consortium consisting of 4 academic and 2 industrial partners are working together on improving and expanding current ADME profiling analytics and methods by:
1) innovative in vitro and in vivo ADME tools
2) novel analytical methodologies and
3) new approaches for ADME data handling and computational modelling.
The mini-symposium is a part of the workshop, which is opened to the general public. This year (on Thursday 27 August 2015, at VU University) the theme of the workshop and also the title of the mini-Symposium is “Innovative analytical approaches in ADME”. During the mini-symposium, experts in the field will present innovations in analytical techniques for ADME profiling, progress in the research and future perspectives. The participant will learn about new analytical methods used for metabolite profiling and identification, analytics for biopharmaceuticals, the importance of membrane transporters in the pharmacokinetics and toxicity of drugs, and also about new, more definitive tests for heroin abuse. The mini-symposium will end with a lecture of Jeremy Nicholson entitled: “Systems Medicine and Molecular Phenomics”.
