17th Symposium on Pharmacokinetics and Drug Metabolism

The overall aim of the symposium series is to highlight hot topics within the field of Pharmacokinetics, Drug Metabolism, Pharmacokinetics/Pharmacodynamics, ADME, and Clinical Pharmacology.

The 17th symposium will focus on five key areas within this field that have seen advancement within the last few years.

Session 1: Biotransformation and impact of drug metabolites
Session 2: Drug transporter considerations across drug modalities
Session 3: Pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic considerations in rare disease and special populations
Session 4: Bridging strategies for drug-device products
Session 5: Pharmacokinetics-Pharmacodynamics of drug combination therapies

Additionally, there will be a focus on students, a poster session and the traditional Candlelight Lecture*. Therefore, the scope is broad, but still framed within the aforementioned DMPK field.

Welcome to register to the Symposium, previously known as the Rosenön meeting!

* The Candlelight Lecture

The Candlelight Lecture is a tradition of the PK-Metabolism Section of the Swedish Pharmaceutical Society. The original Candlelight Lecture wasn’t named that at all, instead it was the Keynote Lecture of that symposium in the late 1990s (then called the Rosenön Meeting due to the recuring location of the meeting on an island in the Swedish archipelago). There was a treacherous snowstorm and, at about the time that the keynote lecture was supposed to start, the power on the island went out. To continue with the lecture, the conference moved to the cafeteria where candles were lit and flashlights were in hand and the lecture was delivered completely analogue, by Prof. Philippe Beaune. Ever since, there has been a so-called Candlelight Lecture where an important contributor to the field of PK and Drug Metabolism has been invited to present their career highlights supported by candlelight, pens and a whiteboard.
