Adverse drug events continue to haunt drug development and idiosyncratic drug toxicity issues seem unavoidable. How are scientists and clinicians looking to tackle drug toxicity so compounds can fail early and cheaply? New screening technologies, in vitro assays and in vivo models continue to be developed, but is the right tool being used at the right time to predict and detect adverse events? Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s eighth annual conference on New Models for Predicting Drug Toxicity looks at the scientific and technological progress being made to better predict drug related-toxicities at the preclinical stage, and avoid costly mistakes in the clinic. What assays and models are being used, how reliable is the data and how is this information translated to the clinic? Hear the experiences shared by the experts and join the interactive sessions and panel discussions for active networking, brainstorming and collaborating.

Who should attend: Drug Discovery Scientists, High-Throughput Screeners, Cell Biologists, Safety Pharmacologists, Toxicologists, Stem Cell Biologists, Scientists in ADME/DMPK Groups.

Topics will include, but are not limited to: 

  • New screening technologies: organs-on-chips, microfluidic assays
  • Human iPS-based toxicology screens
  • High-throughput 3D cell culture-based safety assays
  • High content drug safety screening
  • Organotypic cultures for evaluating safety
  • Use of chimeric, humanized animal models
  • Predicting idiosyncratic and mitochondrial toxicity

The deadline for submission is November 14, 2014. 

All proposals are subject to review by the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the highest quality of the conference program. Please note that due to limited speaking slots, preference is given to pharmaceutical and biotech companies, regulators and those from academia. Additionally, vendors/consultants who provide products and services to these biopharmaceutical companies are offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
