Event Title: Adverse Outcome Pathways: From Research to Regulation
Event Date or Start Date: 9/3/2014
End Date: 9/5/2014
Country: UNITED STATES
State or Region: DC
Meeting Website: View more information
Additional Meeting Information: The traditional model of toxicology testing, which involves treating animals with test substances and observing outcomes, may not be sufficient to serve future scientific and regulatory needs. The science of toxicology is turning towards a new model, based on a better understanding of toxicity mechanisms, that will enable prediction of toxic effects in humans. A key element of a mechanistic understanding of a specific toxicity is the construction of an adverse outcome pathway for that toxicity.

An adverse outcome pathway is a conceptual framework constructed from existing knowledge that relates exposure of a type of toxic substance to subsequent steps that result in illness or injury.

Effective communication between researchers and regulators is often a critical determinant of whether new methods or approaches are efficiently translated from the scientific bench to regulatory decision-making practice.

This workshop will explore how interaction and collaboration among stakeholders can be initiated and maintained so that scientific progress in adverse outcome pathway concepts may improve regulatory assessment of chemical toxicity.

A large portion of the agenda is devoted to moderated breakout groups and whole-group discussion.

Opportunities for poster presentation, Trainee Travel Awards, and Poster Presentation Awards will be offered. The submission deadline for all of these is July 28. Check web site for more details and a draft workshop program.

No registration fee is required. Space may fill so register early; the registration deadline is August 15.

Event Title: What is the NOAEL?!! (establishing an NOAEL when the data is not always clear)
Event Date or Start Date: 9/7/2014
End Date: 9/7/2014
Country: UNITED STATES
State or Region: CA
Meeting Website: View more information
Additional Meeting Information: The “no observable adverse effect level” (NOAEL) has been used for communicating results of animal data to clinicians and regulators. For biotechnology-derived therapeutics, effects observed in preclinical studies are often the result of intended exaggerated pharmacology, therefore identifying ADVERSITY and a NOAEL can be a challenging and controversial endeavor.

This interactive workshop is intended to discuss the concepts of adversity and NOAEL, and their application using a case-based approach on a variety of controversial drug development scenarios, so that participants can share and learn from their collective experiences.

Additional Meeting Information: The relatively new field of protein-protein interaction (PPI) is experiencing fantastic growth in the field of drug discovery. The key concepts of PPI are to understand how proteins interact, to understand why inhibiting them is beneficial, and how to identify molecules that block the interactions as treatment strategies.

This upcoming meeting will have sessions that cover novel techniques, new algorithms and databases for PPIs, and potential druggable sites for disrupting protein-protein interactions. Attendees will gain an enhanced understanding of the molecular basis of peptide and protein aggregation and insights into the design of inhibitors of peptide and protein aggregation. Some focused topics we will discuss is how inhibiting PPIs can be a promising therapeutic target, PPI interactions within the TNF family, the first small-molecule inhibitors for the CD40–CD40L, and much more including the fundamental aspects of protein-protein interactions.
