6th Annual Drug Development Congress 2014 Geneva

  • Conference Call
  • Oxford Global Con­fer­ences are pleased to announce the 6th Annual Drug Devel­op­ment Con­gress 2014, tak­ing place at the Inter­con­ti­nen­tal Geneva in Geneva, Switzer­land on 2 & 3 June.

    It is esti­mated that less than 10% of drug devel­op­ment pro­grammes result in safe and effi­ca­cious ther­a­pies. This con­gress brings together a host of drug devel­op­ment experts to dis­cuss how we can strengthen the link between inno­v­a­tive sci­ence and clin­i­cal success.

    Day One of the con­gress cov­ers key advances in pre­dic­tive sci­ence, such as stem cell tech­nolo­gies for pre­dic­tive mod­el­ing and novel bio­marker tech­nol­ogy for safety pre­dic­tion. Speak­ers will dis­cuss meth­ods of achiev­ing phys­i­o­log­i­cally rel­e­vant mod­els and com­pare strate­gies for tack­ling pre­dic­tive chal­lenges, such as com­plex bio­log­ics and multi-​target drugs.

    Day Two of the con­gress looks at the way trans­la­tional research can unlock the poten­tial of early stage pipelines. Pre­sen­ta­tions will explore ways of har­mon­is­ing ADMET strat­egy in dis­cov­ery and devel­op­ment, inte­grat­ing tox­i­col­ogy prac­tices through­out the pipeline and improv­ing the use of imag­ing in trans­la­tional research. Del­e­gates will also hear case stud­ies con­cern­ing key tools for trans­la­tional med­i­cine, includ­ing novel immunoas­says, resis­tance bio­mark­ers and quan­ti­ta­tive sci­ence applications.

    The con­gress is part of the 15th Annual Drug Dis­cov­ery Sum­mit – Europe’s pre­mier net­work­ing and dis­cus­sion forum for phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal lead­ers. The con­gress is also co-​located with the 2nd Annual Dis­cov­ery Chem­istry and Drug Design Con­gress 2014.


    Day 1: Pre­dic­tive Science

    • Exploratory tox­i­col­ogy and mech­a­nism based tox­i­c­ity testing
    • Pre­dic­tive chal­lenges: com­plex bio­log­ics and multi-​target action

    Day 2: Trans­la­tional Medicine

    • The role of imag­ing tech­nol­ogy in trans­la­tional medicine
    • Har­mon­is­ing ADMET strat­egy in dis­cov­ery and development
    • Inte­grat­ing tox­i­col­ogy prac­tices through­out the pipeline
    • New tools for trans­la­tional med­i­cine: novel immunoas­says, resis­tance bio­mark­ers, tox­i­coge­nomic applications
    • PK/​PD – improv­ing deci­sion mak­ing from can­di­date selec­tion to clin­i­cal trial
    • Quan­ti­ta­tive sci­ence: the build­ing block of trans­la­tional medicine?

    Sub­mit a poster

    For atten­dees inter­ested in sub­mit­ting a poster, there are oppor­tu­ni­ties now avail­able. Your poster pre­sen­ta­tion will be located in the exhi­bi­tion room for two days along­side other posters from senior sci­en­tists work­ing in indus­try and academia.

    How to sub­mit your poster

    We will require:

    • Poster title, Abstract (200 words or less)
    • Prin­ci­pal author, Organisation
    • Mail­ing address, Email, Tele­phone, Fax
