  4. 4. HALF-DAY POST-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP A Wednesday 2nd July 2014 I 08.30 – 12.30 I Marriott Regents Park Hotel, London, UK In association with Computational Approaches in ADMET Overview of workshop: About the workshop host: Within the last few years there has been a step-change in the use of computational approaches to examine biological processes. An important challenge is to use these new approaches to better predict drug action (both pharmacology and toxicology) as early in the drug pipeline as possible Dr Nick Plant has nearly 20 years’ experience researching the coordination of cellular responses, which balance the adaptation to altered chemical environments within the body, while maintaining core body functioning. His research has focussed on members of the superfamily of nuclear receptors, which act as ligandactivated transcription factors, sensing their cellular surroundings and coordinating network responses. Utilising both small- and largescale computational approaches his lab aims to understand the coordination of body responses to both external perturbations (e.g. dietary and pharmacological) and during disease progression (e.g. breast cancer), as well as feasibility studies towards the reconstruction of the “silicon human”. This workshop will cover both the theory of these new approaches, and the application of them to a real test case. No previous experience in computational modelling will be assumed! Why you should attend: Computational biology is a rapidly changing field, with new approaches being developed every day. This workshop will help the non-specialist understand what they can expect from such approaches, why these approaches can be applied to ADMET and how they can apply them to their own projects. Note: Practical Session presume that attendees will have access to a PC/tablet and Internet access. Practical Sessions will be run via the network. About The University of Surrey The University of Surrey is a UK top-ten research intensive University based at Guildford, Surrey, UK. Its computational and Systems biology research group is based within the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences. Programme: 08.30 09.00 09.10 09.50 10.30 11.00 11.40 12.20 Registration and coffee Opening remarks Session 1 Theory of Relational Databases Session 2 Practical Session on Relational Databases Coffee break Session 3 Theory of Constraint-Based Models Session 4 Practical Session on Constraint-Based Models Closing remarks HALF-DAY POST-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP A Wednesday 2nd July 2014 I 13.30 – 17.30 I Marriott Regents Park Hotel, London, UK In association with ADME for the Medicinal Chemist Overview of workshop: The session will begin an overview of the digestive system and relate each organ to its corresponding ADME issue. An interactive workshop will focus on routes of administration. A second session will focus on permeability, Pgp and CYP 450 and will be followed by a workshop where participants will explore the literature to distil working solutions to recurrent medicinal chemistry issues. Why you should attend: Medicinal chemists with up to 5 years in industry. Academics who wish to acquaint themselves with key issues in the drug discovery process. The session is suitable to graduates, PhD and Post Doctoral fellows and assumes no prior knowledge. This workshop is not suitable for scientists already versed in ADME.

She then joined Roche (1984-1990) as a medicinal chemist where she was involved in the Trocade as well as the Saquinavir projects. In addition, she played a key role in establishing a Solid Phase Peptide and Oligonucleotide synthesis facility in house. She then Joined Glaxo in 1990, where she has worked on a number of Protease and GPCR drug Discovery projects at various stages of lead discovery and lead optimisation. Corinne then obtained a GlaxoSmithKline sponsored PhD at the University of Cambridge (2000) having worked with Prof S V Ley, FRS on the discovery of novel solid phase amine linkers. She then joined Organon in 2001 where she became responsible for Medicinal Chemistry training of staff and more recently founded Med-Simple, a company specialising in applied Medicinal Chemistry training. She is the author of over 45 publications, book chapters and reviews in these areas. Her research interests include the design of chemical libraries, peptide synthesis, solid phase synthesis and ADME. About the organisation Med-Simple was created in 2004 and provides tailor-made medicinal chemistry courses for the pharmaceutical industry.
