Author: [AUTHOR] Published on 6/6/2024 5:00:00 AM

It’s Deadline Day! Submit Your 2025 Annual Meeting Session Proposal by 4:00 PM ET Today, June 6th! 
Today, Thursday, June 6, 2024, is the last day to submit your innovative idea for a session to be held during the 2025 Annual Meeting, February 19-21, in Washington, DC. Help ASCPT craft an engaging and unique scientific program by submitting one of the new session types: Panel Discussion, Flash Talks, or Interactive Session. 

To inspire attendee engagement and participation, ASCPT has added 3 new session categories for proposal submission:
  • Panel Discussion: This session format features up to three experts discussing a specific topic, facilitated by one or two moderators. The session is designed to last no more than one hour, ensuring a focused and concise exploration of the subject. The discussion allows each panelist to present their viewpoint, followed by a collective discussion and interaction with the audience. 
  • Flash Talks: Flash Talks are succinct sessions designed for quick, impactful presentations. They are ideal for speakers to share key insights, innovative ideas, or project updates. The format is particularly well-suited for conveying clear messages in a short amount of time, keeping the audience engaged with crisp content. 
  • Interactive Session: Interactive Session Formats are designed to actively engage participants in discussions and idea exchanges. This category includes various session types such as point/counterpoint debates, crowdsourcing activities, and fireside chats. Each format encourages dynamic participation from the audience or between speakers, facilitating a deeper understanding and diverse viewpoints. These sessions are ideal for fostering open dialogue, collaborative thinking, and direct interaction between speakers and attendees. 
For more details and full submission guidelines, please visit the ASCPT website. All proposals must be submitted by today, Thursday, June 6, 2024, at 4:00 PM ET

Special Session: Oncology Community & DIA China 
Join us on June 12, 2024, for Dose Optimization Requirements for Oncology Drug Combinations: Insights from the US and China, a collaborative Open Access session brought to you by ASCPT’s Oncology (ONC) Community and DIA China.

This session will provide the US Food and Drug Administration and China Center for Drug Evaluation’s general requirement of dose optimization in the context of drug combinations in oncology with case studies shared. Recent changes will have a big impact on trial execution in China, and as more Chinese companies want to enter the U.S. or EU markets, they strive to gain a greater understanding of the regulatory requirements in these markets.

ASCPT Welcomes Identity Groups
ASCPT wants to continue to foster a feeling of belonging among the diverse members of our Society. To help accomplish this, the Society welcomes Identity Groups.

Identity Groups will allow people to connect and share experiences, and reflect ASCPT’s commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging and support the Society’s mission and vision to advance clinical pharmacology for the benefit of patients and society on a global level. These groups are intended to be self-moderated and managed. They are not intended to have the same formal structures as ASCPT’s Networks and Communities. If you are interested in forming an Identity Group, view the Guidelines for Group Formation. Questions about Identity Groups may be sent to Lia Shore.
