13:40 – 15.10

Contribution of new in vitro models for DMPK prediction

Chairs: Madeleine Coimbra (Sanofi), Yannick Parmentier (Servier)
In vitro tools are continuously being optimized for better performance. Their many benefits (increased accuracy and representativity to in vivo situation, decreased reliance on animal testing, high throughput capabilities, personalized medicine applications and safety assessment features) make them essential resources that the scientific community is working hard to perfect. Join this session to explore the potential of HepaSH and 3D models for DMPK prediction and expand your knowledge on this topic.

Impact of gut microbiome on small molecules metabolism and integration of these parameters in Drug Discovery and Development

Chairs: Priscilla Brun (Sanofi), Laurence Del Frari (Pierre Fabre)
This session will present the reasons behind the under-consideration of the microbiome in pharma, the present limitations and progress of the microbiome tools (i-screen), and the recommendation to integrate as early as possible the gut microbiome in the drug discovery and development process of small molecules. 

1- Patrick Jimonet (Medicen): Integration of Gut Microbiome Drug Metabolism in Drug Discovery and Development of Small Molecules  

2-Frank Schuren (TNO): Microbiome mediated drug metabolism studies in the TNO i-screen model
