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.

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 and ASCPT Board of Directors. The performance of a Community will be evaluated by Network leaders as necessary to assess if it is meeting the needs of the members.
