Recently held events

Joint symposium with British Pharmacological Society at the Spanish Pharmacological Society (SEF)/British Pharmacological Society meeting in Barcelona, Spain from 18th to 21st June 2017

A symposium entitled "Pharmacology and toxicology of drug transporters: recent advances" was chaired by Dr Daniel Antoine (University of Liverpool) and Professor Ann Daly (Newcastle University). The speakers were Dr Aleksandra Galetin (University of Manchester), Dr Jose Manautou (University of Connecticut), Professor Matthias Schwab (IKP, Stuttgart) and Dr Shiew-Mai Huang (FDA and University of Maryland). The abstracts are available in the journal Basic & Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology (2017; 121 (Suppl 2), 3 to 6).

Joint symposium with IUPHAR Pharmacogenetics and Pharmacogenomics Section at 2016 ICT meeting in Merida, Mexico (International Congress of Toxicology, October 2-6 2016)

The symposium was entitled "Influence of ethnicity, genetics and age on drug response and toxicity"  The session chairs were Professors Guilherme Suarez-Kurtz (Rio de Janeiro) and Ann Daly (Newcastle University) who were also speakers together with Professors Jennifer Goldman (Mercy Hospital, Kansas) and Allan Rettie (University of Washington, Seattle).

Methods-2015 23 to 25th November 2015

The section provided sponsorship for the meeting "Methods-2015: The International Symposium on Methods for studying Drug Metabolism and Transport, and African Traditional Medicines" in Pretoria, South Africa held from 23 to 25th November 2015. The organiser was Professor Andrew Walubo. Invited speakers included Professor Matthias Schwab, section vice-chair, Professor Collen Masimirembwa, section secretary and Professor Olavi Pelkonen, a former section chair.

WCP2014 13-18 July 2014

The section contributed to several symposia in the IUPHAR2014 programme and also held a business meeting during the meeting to elect some new officers and members of the executive board. An important feature of our participation in this meeting involved four symposia which we proposed jointly with the Pharmacogenetics Section. We are grateful to the conference organisers for accepting all four symposia which were each well attended with some interesting discussion between the speakers and the audience.

Details of the symposia were as follows:

(i) Epigenetic regulation of drug metabolizing enzymes and transporters chaired by Ingolf Cascorbi with Magnus Ingelman-Sundberg, Ingolf Cascorbi and Matthias Schwab as speakers.
(ii) Pharmacogenetics in infectious disease chaired by Ann Daly with Pedro Gil, Adalberto Santos and Eleni Aklillu as speakers.
(iii) Role of drug transporters in interindividual variations in drug response chaired by Matthias Schwab with Matthias Schwab, Frans Russel and Christoph Funk as speakers.
(iv) Understanding drug-induced liver injury: CYP450 and the immune system chaired by Allan Rettie with James Lewis, Jack Uetrecht and Ann Daly as speakers.
