Metabolomics in Drug Development and Discovery

18 Sep 2012 - 20 Sep 2012 - Boston, USA



Bookmark and Share


Metabolomics provide the ultimate answer to how genetic alterations, disease and environmental influences impact in vivo biology and drug action. That is why, increasingly, drug developers are embracing the benefits of using metabolomics to enhance all aspects of development, from lead discovery right through to post approval surveillance.
Uncovering new drug targets. Identifying safety & efficacy biomarkers. Using pharmaco-metabolomic data in clinical trial design.

Make sure you stay abreast of the last progress and start applying metabolomics to your pipeline.

Metabolomics in Drug Discovery & Development is the world’s only commercially focussed metabolomics meeting. Bringing together the industry leaders to debate what challenges still remain and what stages of drug development can benefit most.

What will you gain from attending?

  • You will improve your knowledge of current metabolomic techniques in target identification & validation
  • Get a detailed understanding of how metabolomics can be used to reduce costs & time and improve safety of your clinical development
  • Hear in-depth studies on how pharmaceutical companies and leading innovators are applying metabolomics to understand biological variability
  • Receive an update on how the FDA are preparing for the use of metabolomics and biomarker data in drug submissions
  • Learn which technologies and services are helping to analyze complex metabolomic data sets and discover new biomarkers

Retractable Protein Nanoneedles
The ability to control the transfer of molecules through cellular membranes is an important function in synthetic biology; a new study from researchers at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and Harvard Medical School (HMS) introduces a novel mechanical method for controlling release of molecules inside cells.
Leukemia’s Surroundings Key to its Growth
Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have discovered that a type of cancer found primarily in children can grow only when signaled to do so by other nearby cells that are noncancerous.
Common Cell Transformed into Master Heart Cell
By genetically reprogramming the most common type of cell in mammalian connective tissue, researchers at the University of Wisconsin—Madison have generated master heart cells — primitive progenitors that form the developing heart.
‘Smelling’ Prostate Cancer
A research team from the University of Liverpool and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) has reached an important milestone towards creating a urine diagnostic test for prostate cancer that could mean that invasive diagnostic procedures that men currently undergo eventually become a thing of the past.
Genetic Mutation that Prevents Diabetes Complications
The most significant complications of diabetes include diabetic retinal disease, or retinopathy, and diabetic kidney disease, or nephropathy. Both involve damaged capillaries.
