Submit a Proposal for One of Two Pre-Conference Events to Be Held at ASCPT 2020 
The ASCPT Board of Directors is accepting Pre-Conference program proposals for the 2020 ASCPT Annual Meeting in Houston, TX, March 17-21. 

The submission process for 2020 Pre-Conference proposals is still open to all ASCPT members, but will close just one week from now, Monday, April 22, 2019. The decision on which Pre-Conference will be accepted for development for the 2020 Annual Meeting will be based on the following criteria:
  • Timeliness, relevance, and scientific importance of the topic; 
  • Ability to attract 150-250 attendees, and; 
  • Use of a variety of teaching methods geared toward adult learners.
Proposals must contain the following essential elements:
  • A well-developed 150 word description of the Pre-Conference program; 
  • Names of co-sponsoring ASCPT Networks/Communities or other organizations.  If you are working with another organization(s), please include name(s), contact information, and details on the role of co-sponsor(s) in the Pre-Conference;
  • An outline identifying key topics and key speakers identified by name, title, and institution;
  • Description of all AV needs to execute the Pre-Conference, and;  
  • Any additional details as requested by the ASCPT Board during the consideration process. 
Proposals may be for a Pre-Conference program of 1, 1.5, or 2 days in length (March 17-18, 2020).  ASCPT staff will draft an estimated budget for all proposals based on key expense items, including number and location of non-member speakers, speaker travel, AV needs, internet/wireless needs, food and beverage, and other relevant Pre-Conference costs. The Board will consider both the proposal and the budget estimate and will select the proposals for presentation as ASCPT 2020 Pre-Conferences based on the above noted criteria.
Questions about Pre-Conference proposals and submissions can be directed to Elise Laffman-Johnson at elise@ascpt.org

Members-Only Webinar Happening Today!
The Pharmacogenomics Community invites all ASCPT members to join them for an exciting webinar taking place today, Thursday, April 4 at 11:00 AM EDT, From Genotype to Multiple Phenotypes: Drug-Induced and Disease-Induced Phenoconversion.

In this presentation, examples of the heterogeneity observed in populations as it pertains to cytochrome P450 isoform activities (phenotype) will be reviewed. The presenters will dissect this variability by looking at the role of various variables such as individual characteristics such as age, gender, weight, disease, genotype, and the role of environment. This webinar will address more specific phenoconversion situations (genotype/phenotype mismatches) due to concomitant drug administration. Finally, there will be a discussion on the influence of chronic inflammation on cytochrome P450 activities. Examples of misinterpretation of genotype results and unexpected drug response due to inappropriate dose use or drug selected will be presented. Tips will be provided on how to improve interpretation of genotype results to offer appropriate recommendations for drug use in patents with polypharmacy and various diseases.
