Help Shape Future Annual Meetings
What’s next for the ASCPT Annual Meeting? If you attended ASCPT 2024, we want your feedback, and we want all members to think about novel sessions for ASCPT 2025.

If you attended the 2024 Annual Meeting or one of the two Pre-Conferences, ASCPT wants your feedback on your conference experience. With just six questions, these redesigned evaluations enable you to provide your perspective on what worked, what should be enhanced, and what topics you think should be covered in future Annual Meetings and Pre-Conferences.

Brainstorm for 2025
ASCPT is now focused on creating a 2025 Annual Meeting experience that best fits the needs of our members. Members are encouraged to start thinking about novel session types that can be submitted that fit the theme of “Patient-Centric Clinical Pharmacology: A Journey from Discovery to Recovery.” The goal of the meeting is to emphasize the continuous evolution and progress in the field of clinical pharmacology and translational science, with a strong focus on placing patients at the center of this journey. Think creatively and move your session beyond the podium by including Ted-style talks, flash talks, fireside chats, crowdsourcing, and lessons learned. 

Contact the ASCPT Meetings Department at meetings@ascpt.org with questions.

Register and Attend the Virtual 2024 William B. Abrams Lecture
Registration for the virtual 2024 William B. Abrams Lecture, presented by David J. Greenblatt, MD, is now open. 

Date: May 1, 2024
Time: 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Title: The Benzodiazepine Era
Presenter: David J. Greenblatt, MD, Louis Lasagna Endowed Professor, Tufts University School of Medicine
Description: Anxiety, panic disorder, and insomnia have long been recognized in the history of human health.  Options for pharmacologic treatment were available through the first half of the 20th century, and included barbiturates, sedating antihistamines, and a number of barbiturate-like sedative agents.  However, disadvantages and drawbacks of treatment options were substantial, and included tolerance and dependence, drug interactions, and hazards of overdosage. This presentation reviews basic and clinical research milestones in the development of benzodiazepine agonist medications from 1960 to the present, with a focus on conclusions supported by credible scientific evidence, and on challenges faced by the clinical and regulatory communities.
Zoom Registration: All must register for the webcast to access the meeting virtual room.
