Session 5: Panel discussion: “Will we need to continue developing experimental PKPD toolboxes in the future or will in silico predictions drive the area forward?”

Moderator: Markus Fridén, AstraZeneca & Uppsala University (SE)

Continuous success in creating medicines of established drug modalities - small molecules and monoclonal antibodies - has been enabled by comprehensive understanding of PK and PK/PD and the availability of industrial infrastructures for discovery and development. In this panel discussion we explore the challenges ahead for successfully delivering medicines of the whole plethora of new modalities and targeted delivery approaches. How can we leverage established PK and PK/PD methodologies and what are the areas in need of innovation?

Presenter 1: Elizabeth CM de Lange, Leiden University (NL)
Presenter 2: Lassina Badolo, AstraZeneca (SE)
Presenter 3: Irena Loryan, Uppsala University (SE)
Presenter 4: Pär Matsson, University of Gothenburg (SE)

Panel discussion Closing remarks
