ASCPT 2024 Annual Meeting Proposals Are Due in Just One Week!
There’s just one week left to submit your session proposal for the ASCPT 2024 Annual Meeting, which will take place in-person March 27-29, in Colorado Springs, Colorado.  

In 2024, we will gather to address the scientific challenge of how we can collectively generate, disseminate, communicate, and implement innovative or best practice approaches relating to clinical pharmacology and translational medicine to ensure safe, effective, treatment for individuals across the globe. As you prepare a proposal that fits within the overall theme of “New Horizons for Global Outreach,” also consider how your talks can best be delivered. The Scientific Program Committee encourages unique presentation styles such as:
  • Panel discussions
  • Flash talks
  • Fireside chats
  • and Ted-Style talks 
If appropriate, your session may also include opportunities for attendee engagement such as crowdsourcing/live polling or other innovative, interactive elements. 

With session possibilities including 15-minute, 30-minute, or 60-minute options, ASCPT 2024 can help you move your science beyond the podium. 

View the full Call for Proposals and reach out to meetings@ascpt.org with questions. The deadline to submit is Thursday, June 8, 2023, 4:00 PM ET.

Welcome, Dr. Qi Liu to Clinical and Translational Science!
Clinical and Translational Science (CTS) is pleased to announce that Qi Liu, PhD, M.Stat., has joined its editorial team as Associate Editor. Dr. Liu currently serves as Associate Director for Innovation & Partnership in the Office of Clinical Pharmacology (OCP) for the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 

Under her leadership, the OCP has collaborated with internal and external experts to develop a portfolio on machine learning/artificial intelligence, real world evidence, and digital health technologies. In her time at the FDA, she has also contributed more than 200 NDA/sNDA reviews, 20 BLA/sBLA reviews, and numerous IND reviews to support drug development. In addition, Dr. Liu has co-authored close to 60 manuscripts and/or book chapters, presented a variety of topics at FDA Advisory Committee meetings and scientific conferences, contributed to several FDA guidance documents, and helped to develop a Manual of Policies and Procedures. She has co-led the OCP’s Physiological Based Pharmacokinetic Modeling and Simulation Oversight Board, the Biologics Oversight Board, and the Real-Time Oncology Review and Assessment Aid Pilot Programs. Prior to joining the FDA, Dr. Liu held a senior pharmacokineticist position with Merck & Co., Inc. Her educational achievements include a PhD in Pharmaceutics and a Master’s degree in Statistics, both from the University of Florida, as well as a Master’s degree in Pharmaceutics and a Bachelor’s degree in Clinical Pharmacy from West China University of Medical Sciences.

Of course, a new addition to the team often means saying goodbye to a valued member. We wish to thank Michael Pacanowski, PharmD, for his exemplary service to CTS. He has contributed greatly to the journal’s success in his time as Associate Editor, and his work ethic and insights will be greatly missed. Mike, we’re sad to see you go! We greatly appreciate everything you’ve done for CTS!
