Drug Discovery of the Year 2015 nominations
The British Pharmacological Society is accepting nominations for its third Drug Discovery of the Year award. The award was established by the Society in 2012 to demonstrate the importance of pharmacology in the development of new medicines, and to reward the achievements of the teams of scientists who discover and develop these drugs.
Drug Discovery of the Year 2013: the Genentech team who developed vismodegib
Drug Discovery of the Year 2014: the GlaxoSmithKline team responsible for trametinib
Professor Humphrey Rang, BPS President, comments: “The British Pharmacological Society was encouraged by the exceptional quality of the nominations received last year. I am delighted to announce the call for submissions to our third Drug Discovery of the Year award and to welcome nominations from across all disease areas that demonstrate the importance of both pre-clinical and clinical pharmacology in translating early discoveries into medicines that benefit patients.”
The Society’s 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:
· preclinical to clinical translation shows the importance of both preclinical and clinical pharmacology in the drug discovery/development process
· gained regulatory approval within the last three years in the EU and/or US
· 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 2014. The winning team will be publicly announced during the Society’s flagship meeting Pharmacology 2014, held in London on 16-18 December 2014, and attended by an anticipated 1,000 pharmacologists.
The award does not promote 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
COMPLETELY NEW FORMAT FOR 2014 AHPPI ANNUAL MEETING! Academy of Medical Sciences, London, Thursday 30th October 2014.
We are pleased to announce that AHPPI members are invited to speak at this year’s conference. In contrast to previous years, the meeting will be divided into two parts; the first part being a selection of ten-minute presentations by our members and the latter part a dynamic discussion to guide the future of the AHPPI.
AHPPI members have a wide range of expertise in the early development of new medicines which other members could benefit from. Not only can members and non-members expect to learn something new, but also a greater knowledge of and connection to the expert network we are part of.
We therefore invite AHPPI to propose a topic on which they can give a focused 10-minute presentation, such as:
· New developments
· Innovative methods and study designs
· Current issues
· Regulatory aspects
· Case histories
If you have a proposal, please send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. by July 18th at the latest. Otherwise, please save the date to attend our reformatted conference.
Further details will be released soon. Save the date or make your proposal now!
