Contribute and Get More from Your 2024 Annual Meeting Experience
Are you planning on attending the 2024 Annual Meeting March 26-29 and want to know how to get more from your experience? Contribute your latest research as an abstract for presentation and plan now to join us for one of two special Pre-Conference programs being planned! 

Is your latest research ready to be presented to an audience of expert and up-and-coming clinical pharmacologists and translational scientists? Just one week remains to submit your abstract for presentation next March. Review the full Abstract Submission Guidelines to learn more about the submission criteria. The deadline to submit your abstract is September 14, 2023, 4:00 PM ET. Contact meetings@ascpt.org with questions. 

ASCPT is also pleased to announce that we will host two Pre-Conference events in 2024!
Workshop on Application of Clinical Pharmacology Concepts to Enhance Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Global Clinical Trials will be chaired by Aarti Sawant, PhD, AstraZeneca and Rashmi Mehta, PhD, GlaxoSmithKline, and will provide an overview of ongoing efforts to utilize clinical pharmacology tools to implement the guidance on diversity plans targeted at improving participation of under-represented populations in clinical trials. The program will offer an interactive experience that aims to advance knowledge on enhanced diversity in clinical trials and will include the presentation of case studies where clinical pharmacology concepts enhance understanding of disposition of molecules, risk assessments using modeling and simulation, well-designed clinical trials, and technologies to enable DCTs  resulting in increased enrollment in subsequent trials, and extrapolation/bridging from Phase III outcomes to those populations under-represented in pivotal studies.

Empowering Clinical Pharmacologists and Translational Scientists Using Artificial Intelligence: Unlocking Potential with Cutting-Edge Use Cases will be chaired by Mohamed Shahin, PHD, Pfizer, James Lu, PhD, Genentech, and C.J. Musante, PhD, Pfizer, and is a collaboration between the Translational Informatics Community and the Quantitative Pharmacology Network at ASCPT, the International Society of Pharmacometrics (ISoP), and the IQ Consortium AI/ML Working Group. Attendees will gain insight into the various AI-driven applications in drug development, dosing optimization, translational science, biomarker discovery, and disease modeling.

Get Ready for Week Two of the Network & Community Experience (NCE) 2023!
Week Two of the Network & Community Experience (NCE) 2023 is just around the corner!

Join us for this engaging and informative virtual experience planned for the week of October 2, 2023, that will showcase the scientific discoveries of a diverse range of the ASCPT Networks and Communities. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about cutting-edge research while engaging in conversations, getting to know your colleagues, enhancing your soft skills, and more! Registration is open and complimentary for ASCPT members. If you registered for Week One of NCE 2023, we automatically registered you for Week Two. 

In the interim, you can check out the on-demand content from Week One of NCE 2023 on the official NCE webpage to revisit a session you attended or watch one that you were not able to attend. We look forward to seeing you during Week Two of NCE 2023!

Meet the New Editors-in-Training!
Please join the ASCPT Journal Family in welcoming our fourth Editor-in-Training cohort!

Starting this month, Dr. Mai Mehanna, and ORISE Fellow at the US Food and Drug Administration, and Dr. Ya-Feng Wen, Clinical Pharmacologist at Gilead, will be part of the Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics editorial team. Joining CPT: Pharmacometrics & Systems Pharmacology will be Dr. Jane Knӧchel, Associate Director at AstraZeneca, and Dr. Brian Cicali, Research Assistant Professor at the University of Florida. Rounding out the latest cohort will be Dr. Zhu Zhou, Associate Professor at the City University of New York, and Dr. Zachary Taylor, Assistant Professor at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, who will be joining the Clinical and Translational Science team. All three journals are looking forward to getting to know our new Editors-in-Training. 

Of course, welcoming a new cohort means saying goodbye to our current Editors-in-Training. We wish to thank Drs. Rajat Desikan, Priya Jayachandran, Nihal El Rouby, Arianna Panni, Sofia Choi, and Karen Brown for their excellent work on behalf of the journal family. We will miss working with all six of them, but we know this won’t be the last time you’ll see their names in conjunction with great things at ASCPT!
