The International Transporter Consortium (ITC) will host its 3rd workshop focusing on new research in membrane transporters, particularly as they relate to drug development. This workshop will take place immediately before the ASCPT 2017 Annual Meeting, March 13-14, 2017, at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC.
The 3rd Workshop on Membrane Transporters in Drug Development is a two-day workshop, with speakers who are prominent transporter biologists from universities, regulatory agencies and pharmaceutical companies. The workshop will cover a range of topics in transporter biology, including the endogenous function of transporters, emerging transporters of importance in drug development, modeling of transporters, genomics and biomarker probes of transporters, as well as regulatory issues in transporter-mediated drug-drug interactions. Case studies representing perspectives of regulatory agencies (e.g., FDA and EMA) will be presented along with a panel discussion involving experts in the field to address questions from the attendees. Finally, there will be breakout groups of interested scientists who will focus on writing whitepapers, review articles and commentary to be published in a special issue of Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics.
