Networks and Communities

As the primary forum for member exchange and networking, ASCPT’s Networks and Communities promote interaction among members who share a common field of interest. In doing so, they facilitate scientific growth within that area.

Networks: ASCPT members are aligned into 3 broad Networks - Quantitative Pharmacology (QP), Translational & Precision Medicine (TPM) and Development, Regulatory & Outcomes (DRO). These Networks act as a“home” for members and allow for professional development, networking, leadership opportunities and scientific engagement. 

Communities:  In order for ASCPT to foster innovation and remain at the forefront of emerging science, member-driven Communities have been established. These Communities are fluid, smaller groups that enable members to unify around a specific scientific discipline. Although Communities are primarily affiliated with a specific Network, their true strength is realized by cross-fertilization and collaboration.

Get Involved

Annual Meeting Programming:
•Unify therapeutic disciplines, convening translational scientists in academia, industry and government to leverage their diverse expertise”. 
•Communities are best placed to energize their diverse members regarding submissions and mentor in proposal development, encouraging collaboration across Networks and Communities.
Assist the Scientific Program Committee by prioritizing submitted proposals related to their Network.

Hosting a Network Meeting:
Network Meetings provide an opportunity for the Networks and affiliated Communities to extend specialty scientific programming as well as provide business updates to members.

Establish a Rhythm of Business: 
Engage members in a meaningful way beyond the Annual Meeting, e.g., teleconferences or webinars based on emerging science, crowd-sourcing for problem solving, etc. 

Discipline Experts for ASCPT:
Networks are best placed to achieve the Society’s goal of being “the scientific resource that influences decision-making on therapeutic usage for patient care.

On-line Presence:
Provide members ready access to information relating to their discipline.

Governance & Structure

The Network leadership (Chair and Vice-Chair) is appointed by the President for a 1-year term; the Vice-Chair acts as the Incoming Chair. The Network leadership comprises a Steering Committee composed minimally of the Community leadership, but may also have additional appointments (e.g., social media/website, initiative leads. etc.) as necessary.  

The Community Leadership (Chair and Vice-Chair) is appointed by the Network Chairs for a 1-year term; the Vice-Chair will be the Incoming Chair. The President and ASCPT endorse the final appointments. The Community Leadership may also form ad hoc Steering Committees, as needed. 

Additionally, members can form around a common theme at any time, however, to receive formal recognition as a “Community” they need to have a minimum of 30 interested members and get approval from the Network Leaders. The performance of a Community will be evaluated by Network leaders as necessary to assess if it is meeting the needs of the members.
