The Drug Metabolism GRS provides a unique forum for young doctoral and post-doctoral researchers to present their work, discuss new methods, cutting edge ideas, and pre-published data, as well as to build collaborative relationships with their peers. Experienced mentors and trainee moderators will facilitate active participation in scientific discussion to allow all attendees to be engaged participants rather than spectators.
The seminar will focus on methods and techniques to improve ADME evaluation and in vitro-in vivo correlation for better pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic predictions leading to more efficient drug development across modalities. The seminar aims to include topics on different modalities including, but not limited to, small molecules (e.g., peptides, protein degraders), oligonucleotides (e.g., siRNA, antisense), and therapeutic proteins (e.g., antibodies, antibody drug conjugates). Attendees are encouraged to submit abstracts and present at the poster sessions. Some of the abstracts will be selected for oral presentations. The GRS will also include a mentorship panel represented by early stage and established career scientists in industry, academia, and government.
The seminar will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS, either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.
The seminar chair will select speakers from abstracts submitted by April 2, 2023. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Information section above.
Gordon Research Seminars are 2-day meetings which take place on the Saturday and Sunday just prior to the start of the associated GRC. The GRS opens with a 1-hour introductory session on Saturday afternoon, followed by a poster session, dinner and a 2-hour session in the evening. Sunday morning begins with breakfast and is followed by another 2-hour session, a second poster session, and lunch. A final 1-hour session takes place just after lunch, and the associated GRC begins later that evening.
An outline of the program components for this GRS is displayed below. The seminar chair is currently developing their detailed program schedule, which will include the speakers they select from submitted abstracts, in addition to any additional components outlined below. The detailed program will be available by May 9, 2023. Please check back for updates.
