Member-Get-A-Member Campaign Winner
Congratulations to Elvin T. Price, PharmD, PhD, who has been named the Top Overall Advocate Member Award recipient!

Elvin is the winner of a complimentary hotel stay and registration to the ASCPT 2019 Annual Meeting for having referred four new members to the Society as part of the yearly Member-Get-A-Member Campaign!

In response to having received this recognition, Elvin stated “ASCPT features a dynamic membership comprised of the world’s leading clinical pharmacologists. Additionally, ASCPT members remain on the cutting-edge of pharmacogenomics, pharmacometrics, and additional sciences that are contributing to improved therapeutic outcomes. I fell in love with the Society in 2007 when I attended my first meeting in Anaheim, California. I was mesmerized by the quality of presentations and I knew that ASCPT would be one of my scientific homes.  

I invited my colleagues to join ASCPT as it is a diverse Society that convenes experts from various scientific specialty areas.  As a faculty member that works within a transdisciplinary research team, I recognized that ASCPT is a Society that could speak to the areas of expertise from our various members.  Specifically, our team is comprised of clinical pharmacologists, pharmacogeneticists, bioinformaticians, nurses, graduate students, and undergraduate students.  Therefore, ASCPT was a logical choice of membership for our transdisciplinary team.”

Congratulations again to this year’s winner! Watch this page for your chance to be named Top Overall Member Advocate starting in July 2019.

NCATS Announces NIH HEAL-Related Funding Opportunities
NCATS is supporting three new funding opportunities and a prize challenge through the NIH HEAL (Helping to End Addiction Long-term℠) Initiative. The opportunities are part of the collection that NIH released on Dec. 10, 2018, to solicit the best and brightest research ideas to bolster existing research in the areas of addiction, pain, and opioid use disorders.

As part of NIH HEAL, NCATS is providing a suite of translational science resources and expertise to investigators working on opioid and pain research. The Center will lead trans-NIH collaborative HEAL efforts to:
  • Develop new testing platforms that more closely model human biology;
  • Find, de-risk, test, and optimize promising compounds;
  • Identify new chemical structures and develop them into drug-like compounds;
  • Advance new drug candidates through rigorous pre-clinical efficacy and safety studies needed for first-in-human clinical trials; and
  • Facilitate opportunities to partner with other NIH Institutes and Centers as well as clinical research institutions to conduct comparative-effectiveness studies of existing pain management treatments.
