21st PK/PD Expert Meeting (Pharmacokinetics / Pharmacodynamics)

4. May 2017 - 5. May 2017
PKPD 2017, Heppenheim

takes place on May 4th to 6th at the “Hotel am Bruchsee” in Heppenheim.

The registration for the meeting is now open and takes place exclusively via the following link: www.pkpd-expertentreffen.de. All further information including the agenda and the differentiated registration fees can also be found there. 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:



  • PK/PD Strategies to Streamline Early Clinical Drug Development
  • Pulmonary Administration: Lung as Target Organ
  • New Insights into Absorption and the ORBITO Initiative


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.

Since 2012, generous donations have enabled the Organizing Committee of the PK/PD Expert Meeting to reward outstanding contributions by young scientists to the PK/PD field with the Hans Günter Schäfer Award (cash amount of 1000 EUR plus free meeting participation incl. reimbursement of travel expenses) issued in memory of the original initiator of the PK/PD Expert Meeting.

Doctorate students and young scientists, who want to apply for this award, are invited to send their manuscript published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal as a pdf file by February 15th, 2016 to Dr. Joachim Höchel (joachim.hoechel ( a t ) bayer.com). The winner of the award will have the opportunity to present her or his work during the meeting and will be announced on the website of the PK/PD Expert Meeting.

We look forward to seeing you in Berlin in April 2016.
