Quantitative Pharmacology Impact & Influence Initiative
The ASCPT Quantitative Pharmacology Network invites members to contribute to new case studies for the Influence and Impact Initiative that broadly highlight the impact of quantitative pharmacology in discovery and development strategy making, as well as in regulatory and post-marketing decision making.

The aim of this initiative is to build upon the first version of the crowd-sourced compendium repository with new state-of-the-art quantitative pharmacology applications to increase awareness, advocacy for, and education in applied quantitative pharmacology sciences. In addition, the initiative aims to detect advances and new trends in the field. If you would like to contribute, please submit your interest by March 7, 2019, by sending an email with the title for your case study to Aline Barth, PhD, or Akshanth Polepally, PhD

New From the ASCPT Journal Family
Translational Bytes takes a look at diversity in pharmacogenomics and all ASCPT Journal Family authors are reminded to register for an ORCiD. 

Diversity in Pharmacogenomics
Deputy Editor-in-Chief of Clinical and Translational Science, Deanna L. Koretz, PhD, looks at how differences in race and sex can effect our understanding of diseases and treatments, especially when considering genomic studies and minority populations. The Translational Bytes post, ACCOuNT-ing for African Americans in Pharmacogenomics, is a must-read!

What’s Your ORCiD?
Use the unique identification number ORCID to connect with your publications. Publishers and editors across scientific disciplines encourage authors to use this ID to distinguish researchers from one another, and link them to professional activities. The great news is the ASCPT Journals already collect ORCIDs, so just input your number when you next submit and begin tracking your articles! Questions? Contact Emma Shumeyko at emma@ascpt.org
