Under the auspices of the AGAH the 

23rd Pharmacokinetics/Pharmacodynamics (PK/PD) Expert Meeting

takes place on May 9-11, 2019 in Friedrichroda

The registration for the meeting will be open soon and will be exclusively possible via the following link: www.pkpd-expertentreffen.de. All further information including the agenda and the differentiated registration fees can also be found there by end of January 2019. A limited number of young PK/PD scientists (doctorate student and post-doctoral fellow level) can apply to be supported by waiving the participation fee.

Please note that the number of participants is limited. Your confirmed registration therefore does not only depend on the time of registration, but also on the receipt of payment of the registration fee. Registrations without payment within 4 weeks are considered cancelled and the space will be offered to colleagues on the waiting list.

Presentations and associated discussions of this year’s meeting will focus on the following topics:

  • Insight in chronobiology and its impact on PK/PD and drug development
  • Make man transparent: application of imaging techniques in biodistribution and pharmacodynamics
  • Oncolytic virus therapy – fighting cancer with good bugs

If you would like to learn more about the concept and background of the PK/PD Expert Meeting, please read its Charter available on the website.

Young scientists: Hans-Günter Schäfer Award
