The central theme for IAPC-9 meeting is “Emerging Technologies in Drug Discovery and Development”, which aims at disseminating and sharing novel technologies and cutting edge platforms in drug discovery and development, with particular emphases to:
- cut down R&D cost using state-of-art drug design and screening technologies,
- mitigate potential risk at the early drug discovery stage with efficient ADMET evaluations,
- reduce drug attrition during both drug discovery and development phases,
- improve drug efficacy from reliable preclinical animal models through clinical studies using relevant PK/PD and translational models,
- ensure drug safety by comprehensive safety assessments and de-risking approaches.
