Workshop Summary

The 9th annual AAPS Joint Workshop on Drug Transporters in ADME: From the Bench to the Bedside highlights the next generation of transporters and transport mechanisms that may contribute to ADME properties in disease, drug discovery and development.

Attendees of this state-of-the-art event will:

  • Understand contributions of heteromeric transporters (ABCG5/G8, ABCD2, OSTα/β) to biliary excretion of cholesterol and disease states
  • Explore intracellular mechanisms of lysosomal sequestration, large molecule transport (antibody, siRNA, antisense RNA)
  • Analyze current trends in transporter imaging, 3D culture models, and
  • Discuss in silico approaches to predicting transporter substrate and inhibitor activity

In addition, thought leaders from the International Transporter Consortium (ITC) will discuss implications of recent white papers and the FDA and EMA regulatory agencies will present their perspectives on the newly separated in-vitro and in-vivo transporter guidance.

Featured Speaker


Our keynote speaker, Professor Per Artursson , is an AAPS Fellow and the head of the Drug Delivery research team in the Dosage Form Design at the Department of Pharmacy, Uppsala University, Sweden. With over 200 publications, Professor Artursson is one of the worlds most cited pharmaceutical scientists.
