Academic Events

As a specialist scientific organisation, we hold many challenging events every year.

In a two-year cycle, the AGAH holds an acclaimed scientific congress in Germany, where relevant topics that interest our members are discussed – alternating with a scientific event with one of our partner organisations, AHPPI in UK, Bapu in Belgium or Association Française de Pharmacologie Translationelle (AFPT) -Le Club Phase I in France.

In addition, scientific workshops are held on special topics and there is a yearly national discussion round together with the BfArM, where mostly safety-relevant matters in early-phase clinical studies are discussed. The programme is rounded off with training courses, entitled Introductory or Applied Workshops for young scientists and a training programme specifically for study nurses.

  • 6. Deutscher Kongress für Patientensicherheit bei medikamentöser Therapie

    Langenbeck-Virchow-Haus  |  Oct 24 - Oct 25, 2024

    Erreichtes und Lösungen für den Aktionsplan zur Verbesserung der Arzneimitteltherapiesicherheit in Deutschland

  • Introductory Course in Exploratory Medicines Development – Part II

    Tagungshaus- und Bildungshaus des Bistums Limburg  |  Sep 24 - Sep 27, 2024

    This course addresses postgraduates in life sciences interested in early clinical development of medicinal products. Two training parts of several days provide a concise overview on Human Pharmacology / Translational Medicine spanning from non-clinical pharmacology and toxicology over first-in-man studies to proof-of-concept clinical trials.

  • AGAH – Applied Course in Clinical Pharmacokinetics (2 days)

    SocraTec R&D Oberursel  |  Oct 1 - Oct 2, 2024

    Pharmacokinetics – prerequisite and at the same time “door opener” for understanding pharmacology!

  • Modular training course in Human Pharmacology-Module 3

     |  Nov 29 - Dec 9, 2024

    The German Association of Human Pharmacology (AGAH e.V.), the Association Francaise de Pharmacologie Translationelle (AFPT) in cooperation with the European Federation for Exploratory Medicines Development (EUFEMED) and its further Member Societies are developing a modular training course in Human Pharmacology, leading to qualifications at the certificate and diploma levels. The training courses are intended for physicians, biopharmaceutical scientists and healthcare professionals working in early phase clinical research and would also suit investigators intending to fulfil the role of Principal Investigator for First in Human (FIH) trials.

Program Information

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

vor mehr als 15 Jahren wurde der „Aktionsplan zur Verbesserung der Arzneimitteltherapiesicherheit in Deutschland“ vom Bundesministerium für Gesundheit ins Leben gerufen, um die folgenden Fragen zu analysieren: Wie gehen wir mit Fehlern um, wie können wir gemeinsam aus Fehlern lernen und vor allem – wie können wir Medikationsfehler künftig vermeiden, um die Arzneimitteltherapie für unsere Patientinnen und Patienten sicherer zu machen?

Seit dem letzten Kongress im Jahr 2018 hat sich viel ereignet, nicht nur im Bereich der Digitalisierung! Wir laden Sie herzlich ein, gemeinsam auf dem „6. Deutschen Kongress für Patientensicherheit bei medikamentöser Therapie“ einen Blick auf bereits Erreichtes zu werfen und Lösungsansätze für noch bestehende und zukünftige Herausforderungen aus multidisziplinärer Perspektive zu diskutieren.

Halten Sie sich den Termin schon jetzt frei – Wir freuen uns auf Sie!

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of Part 2, students should be able to demonstrate an understanding / knowledge of the following:

  • nonclinical pharmacology and toxicology
  • molecular basis of drug actions
  • allometric scaling and dose proportionality assessments based on characteristic PK data
  • defining pharmacodynamic (PD) endpoints and biomarkers
  • differentiating between primary and secondary PK and PD endpoints
  • How to design an early clinical pharmacology developmant plan
  • planning and management of a first-in-man trial
  • principles of data management and information flow
  • principles of reporting and publication
  • principles of medical statistics
  • characteristic issues involved in the development of biologicals and biosimilars

This AGAH course meets the standards for high-quality postgraduate education and training in Medicines Development established by PharmaTrain and has been awarded a PharmaTrain Recognition. The previous courses  were accredited 3 ECTS (Parts I plus II)

AGAH – Applied Course in Clinical Pharmacokinetics (2 days)

Pharmacokinetics – prerequisite and at the same time “door opener” for understanding pharmacology!

Oct 1 - Oct 2, 2024
Program Information

This workshop, developed by experienced specialists from industry, CRO and consultancy, offers an entrée to physiological background, measures and characteristics of pharmacokinetics. It helps to understand study design and evaluation of PK studies and the conclusions drawn from the results.

The workshop has been developed for clinical investigators, project leaders, project managers and monitors as well as PhD students in industry, hospitals, university and CROs. The knowledge obtained in this applied introductory course helps beginners in pharmacokinetics obtaining the basic knowledge and scientific background for professional handling, evaluation and interpretation of PK data.

Modular training course in Human Pharmacology-Module 3

The German Association of Human Pharmacology (AGAH e.V.), the Association Francaise de Pharmacologie Translationelle (AFPT) in cooperation with the European Federation for Exploratory Medicines Development (EUFEMED) and its further Member Societies are developing a modular training course in Human Pharmacology, leading to qualifications at the certificate and diploma levels. The training courses are intended for physicians, biopharmaceutical scientists and healthcare professionals working in early phase clinical research and would also suit investigators intending to fulfil the role of Principal Investigator for First in Human (FIH) trials.

Nov 29 - Dec 9, 2024
Program Information

Currently, 3 modules are available:

Module 1: Introductory Course in Exploratory Medicines Development
Module 2: Non-clinical safety / Clinical safety / Pharmacovigilance
Module 3: Regulatory Issues / Ethics / GxP / Quality Assurance

Day 1: 29 November 2024 Online
Day 2- 4: 2- 4 December 2024, On-site (face-to-face)
Day 5: 9 December 2024, Online

The course content was derived from and is aligned with the syllabus of the PharmaTrain diploma / MSc in Pharmaceutical Medicine / Medicines Development Sciences. PharmaTrain is a not-for-profit organisation assessing the quality of courses in the biopharmaceutical sector. The PharmaTrain syllabus was evaluated and adjusted for applicability and relevance to training in Human Pharmacology. EUFEMED has drawn together a training faculty of experienced course instructors from its member associations and from invited guest lecturers.
