ASCPT Members-Only Webinar presented by the Infectious Diseases (INF) and Oncology (ONC) Communities
Title: Convergence of Therapeutic Approaches in Oncology and HIV to Target Immune Evasion: Integrating Clinical Pharmacology Lessons Learned
Date and Time: Friday, September 25, 2020, 12:00 pm ET
Speakers: Akintunde Bello, PhD, and Islam Younis, PhD
Moderators: Daria Stypinski, PhD and Mark Dresser, PhD
Description: This special virtual session will bring together experts with experience in immuno-oncology and HIV research. They will address the major lessons learned from each therapeutic area and the goal to accelerate the pace and lesson the challenges of drug development. The participants will gain knowledge in the overlapping mechanisms in HIV and cancer that have made similar treatment strategies possible. Lessons learned will be shared from HIV combination therapy approaches on establishing contributions of regiment components to overall safety and efficacy. Immuno-oncology on dose-optimization challenges in the development of immune checkpoint inhibitors will also be explored.

Title: Staying Engaged in Your Career Without Burning Out: A Call for Action to Build Resilience
Date and Time: Thursday, October 8, 2020, 3:00 pm ET
Speaker: Beth Benatti Kennedy, Leadership Coach
Moderators: Karthik Venkatakrishnan, PhD, and Songmao (Ben) Zheng, PhD
Description: Although data specific to biomedical researchers or drug R&D scientists are lacking, data from other professions indicate that you can be passionate about your career and still become burned out. More than ever, at this time while the world is faced with unprecedented challenges by COVID-19, we offer a call for action to scientists and leaders to combat burnout by practicing resilience. Through focus on education, networking and career development, organizations like ASCPT are positioned to catalyze resilience and enable desired outcome. Resilience will nurture a sustainable culture of continuous learning, collaboration, and purpose-oriented innovation, crucial to traversing the increasingly dynamic and iterative path from ideas to medicines. The speaker, Beth Benatti Kennedy, MS, LMFT, Principal of Benatti Training & Development, brings over 25 years of experiences in leadership coaching to introduce best practices for resilience. Beth is the author of Career ReCharge: Five Strategies to Boost Resilience and Beat Burnout. Beth designed the Benatti Resiliency Model® as part of her leadership coaching process to prevent employee burnout and enhance one’s influence and impact in their career. This webinar will focus on the 5 strategies of this Model—well-being, self-awareness, brand, connection, and innovation—and show you how to implement them to achieve greater career satisfaction and add value to your organization.

ASCPT Members-Only Webinar Presented by the Pharmacometrics & Pharmacokinetics (PMK) Communities Members-Only Webinar
Title:  Powering Clinical Pharmacology Analytics into the Digital Age with Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
Date and Time: Friday, October 23, 2020, 2:00 pm ET
Speakers: Jin Y. Jin, PhD, and James Lu, PhD
Moderators: Neeraj Gupta, PhD, and Chunze Li, PhD
Description: As a result of the technological advancements that have taken place over the recent years, our digital world is now largely powered by Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). In the field of Clinical Pharmacology, current analysis approaches entail applying well-established statistical concepts and numerical approximation techniques on top of the foundations of pharmacology. However, the recent growth in high dimensional biomedical data, is putting strains on the existing paradigm. Furthermore, the future needs of personalized medicine may involve performing analytics and generating insights on user devices with little human supervision. Given these trends, new ways to power data analytics in the digital age are needed – enter ML and AI. This special presentation will include:
  • An overview of the data analyses that arise in the Clinical Pharmacology context and how ML/AI can be incorporated into the current paradigm to develop new tools, new methodologies and generate novel insights.
  • How everyone can be empowered to utilize ML with an AutoML tool.
  • Overviews of novel Clinical Pharmacology applications ranging from NCA analysis, model parameter estimation from data (eg, pop-PK/PD, QSP), and linking Tumor Growth Inhibition with Overall Survival (TGI-OS).
  • Perceived limitations of ML/AI and suggested ways to get around them.
  • Details on a case study involving a novel neural-PK/PD framework which combines the power of deep learning with the principles of PK/PD.
