BioFocus Announces its Free Educational Webinars for Drug Discovery Researchers - “Focus on Permeability”
News Apr 27, 2010
BioFocus invites drug discovery researchers to join its free webinar entitled ‘Focus on permeability’. This educational webinar will guide scientists in the implementation of ADME assays in early drug discovery, and on how best to use the data obtained.
Presented by Dr. Alan Beresford, Senior Research Fellow at BioFocus, the webinar will describe commonly used in vitro permeability assays and explain at which stages in the drug discovery process these should be used. Providing guidance on matching assay types to therapeutic areas, as well as advising on data interpretation, this webinar will also address the use of basic computational prediction models and suggest approaches for compounds with poor predicted permeability.
The live webinar will take place on Wednesday 19th May 2010 at 15.00 GMT Summer Time.
