The AGAH board invite new and existing participants to the continuation of the November 2013 workshop. This course provides a basic training in Human Pharmacology and is addressed to postgraduates in life sciences interested in early clinical development of medicinal products. The program, further details and the online form can be found here,
Our colleagues at Club Phase 1 invite AHPPI members to their upcoming annual meeting. Interested parties should register no later than 25th January 2014. Further details can be found here.

This year’s AHPPI event was highly successful and well attended. It has been praised by delegates for the high quality of information and informative presentations. We’d like to thank our highly acclaimed speakers, our sponsors and of course the delegates for their part in making the afternoon so enjoyable. Click here to view the presentations.
On behalf of the British Pharmacological Society, we are delighted to invite AHPPI members to register for Pharmacology 2013, which will be held on 17–19 December at the Queen Elizabeth II (QEII) Conference Centre, London, UK. Formerly known as the BPS Winter Meeting, Pharmacology 2013 reaffirms our commitment to ‘Today’s science, tomorrow’s medicines’ by providing the highest quality scientific content and invaluable networking opportunities for attendees from the UK and overseas.
AHPPI members can register from £125 per day or £295 for three days – simply login to the registration website. BPS members are eligible for FREE registration through the BPS members’ area and it is usually less expensive to join the Society than to pay non-member registration fees. For information on membership, please email Paul Tizard at the BPS office.
Why register for Pharmacology 2013?
Don’t take our word for it!

Judges welcome submissions from across the spectrum of pharmacology
The British Pharmacological Society (BPS) proudly announces that it is now accepting nominations for its Drug Discovery of the Year award. The award was established by BPS to demonstrate the importance of pharmacology in the development of new medicines, and to reward the achievements of the teams of scientists who discover new drugs.
Drug Discovery of the Year was presented last year to the team who developed vismodegib for the treatment of advanced basal cell carcinoma. The announcement followed judging by the BPS Industry Committee, consisting of experts in industrial pharmacology, who reviewed nominations from across the world and a range of disease areas.
Professor Philip Routledge, BPS President, comments: “I am delighted to announce the details of Drug Discovery of the Year and to welcome submissions from across the whole spectrum of pharmacology. BPS intends to build on the number and high quality of the nominations received in 2012, all of which demonstrated the importance of pharmacology in drug discovery.”
This year, BPS Industry Committee will consider nominations for the discovery team behind a drug – whether a large or a small molecule – that best fulfils the following criteria:
Nominations must be received by 1 October 2013. The winning team will be publicly announced during the BPS flagship meeting Pharmacology 2013, held in London 17-19 December 2013 and attended by an anticipated 1,000 pharmacologists.
The award neither promotes the administration, consumption, prescription, purchase, recommendation, sale, supply or use of the winning medicine; nor does it pre-empt any regulatory decisions. Further information is available from www.bps.ac.uk

I have recently returned from a very successful and interesting International meeting in France held between the French (Club Phase 1), German (AGAH), Belgian (BAPU) and UK (AHPPI),human pharmacological societies. The meeting was entitled EARLY CLINICAL UTILITY ASSESSMENT OF NEW MEDICINES IN DEVELOPMENT and gave technical, ethical and regulatory overviews with workshops on pain, adaptive design, PK/PD modelling, cardiac safety and Bayesian statistics. There were eminent speakers and also speakers from most of the EU Regulatory bodies who clearly see us as a force to be reckoned with.
This meeting takes place every two years and it will be our turn to host it in 2017. I’m a little disappointed that there were not more attendees from UK but we were well represented amongst the speakers and session Chairs and involved in some interesting workshops. I am sure you would have enjoyed it as much as I did and I hope you will be able to join me in 2015 for the next meeting which will be held in Belgium.
Help us to increase our membership and tell you friends about the meeting and about AHPPI; the presentations are now available here.
Best wishes to you all.
I just wanted to update you on what we are up to and what is planned for 2013.
We had a very successful annual meeting last year and your committee is about to embark upon planning this year’s meeting; we would love to hear from you as to potential subjects/topics for this meeting. Your committee strives to make it interesting every year but values your input. Any burning topics then please let me or a committee member know your ideas.
We always value combining with our EU colleagues in their annual meetings and this year is time for the 2-yearly combined European meeting which will be held near Nice in April – details of which you will be able to find on our website or that of AGAH, Club Phase 1 or BAPU. This promises to be a very interesting meeting and we hope some of you will be able to support it by attending – I hope to see you there.
An important part of 2012 was to input into MHRA’s ideas on changes they are considering making to the Phase 1 Unit Accreditation scheme. We have to have our final answers by the last week of January so that we can submit them to MHRA. If you wish to have any input or make any comment then please let me or one of your Committee know by 20th January at latest.
We all look forward to a new and exciting year which, I am sure, will be very busy for us all. Please remember that this is your Association and it can only move forward with your help and input, which you can always share with us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on our website.
A Happy New Year to you all.
