BPS invite AHPPI members to Pharmacology 2013

BPSimage001

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?

  • BPS will be opening up this year’s meeting to a greater number of attendees than ever before, as we decided to move to a new, larger space within the QEII Conference Centre
  • High quality sessions and expert speakers are already confirmed in the scientific programme, with nine symposia covering the whole spectrum of pharmacology including a session devoted to the Drug Discovery of the Year
  • Poster and oral presentations are a key component of the meeting, and you are warmly invited to submit your abstract by Monday 16 September 2013
  • Networking opportunities continue to be a focus, so remember to book your place at the Welcome Reception and Annual Dinner & Prize-Giving when you register

Don’t take our word for it!

In our 2012 Meetings Survey, 92% of respondents rated the scientific content of BPS meetings as high quality and 90% agreed that they would recommend BPS meetings to their colleagues. To find out more, watch our video with highlights from last year’s meeting.

We look forward to you joining us in London and hope you will share the details of this meeting with your colleagues. If you have any queries or need further information, please contact the BPS Meetings team on meetings@bps.ac.uk or call +44 (0)20 7239 0176.

Best wishes,

Professor Phil Routledge, BPS President

BPS Drug Discovery of the Year 2013 opens for nominations

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:

  • gained regulatory approval within the last 3 years in the EU and/or US
  • preclinical to clinical translation shows the importance of pharmacology in the drug discovery/development process
  • has a significant impact on an unmet medical need
  • first-in-class, or is a significant improvement over other drugs in the class
  • mechanism of action known

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

Message from Chair: Presentations from the Joint Conference of European Human Pharmacological Societies

Dear Members,

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.

Peter Dewland
AHPPI Chair
