The fourth edition of this series, Early Career's meeting 2023: Hot Topics in the Lab, is taking place face-to-face on Thursday 11 May 2023 at the Newton Building events venue of Nottingham Trent University.

This is a free one-day DMDG meeting designed to provide a platform for early career DMDG members to participate in a vibrant scientific meeting and is exclusively open to scientists who are currently in their first 5 years of working in a DMPK role.

Proposed subject areas for the sessions are:

  • In vitro assays and robotics/automation

  • Non-CYP mediated in vitro metabolism and metabolites

  • In vitro in vivo correlations and extrapolations

  • PK/PD considerations

  • In silico PBPK

  • Analytical techniques, the pros and cons

We invite abstracts from registered delegates for both oral and poster presentations in these areas.

We anticipate that this will give an opportunity for many of the delegates to deliver their first 'live' presentation to a welcoming audience.
The presenter whose talk is voted Best Oral Presentation in Nottingham will be offered a free place* to the 16th European ISSX and DMDG Meeting between 11 - 14 June 2023 to present their talk.

The poster session at the meeting offers the opportunity for all delegates to present a poster. We are appealing to early career scientists who have already registered (and their managers) to work together to design posters (A0 PORTRAIT FORMAT ONLY) and presentations based around work in the lab which can be shared with other DMDG members in the poster room.

There will also be the opportunity to give a short summary presentation on your poster in a Poster Blitz session, similar to those held at DMDG Open Meetings.
The presenter whose poster is voted Best Poster in Nottingham will win a free place* on the DMDG course of their choice.

If you are already registered and would like to present a poster, an oral presentation, or both, please contact the DMDG Apprentice Committee Member, Claire Purdy, and the DMDG Secretariat by emailing us here.

Deadline for submission of abstracts has been extended to Friday 21 April 2023.

Catering will be provided throughout the day.
