Symposium A2
Systems approaches to modeling the contribution of transporters in drug disposition, response and toxicity

Tuesday 23 May 2017
Stockholmsmässan : K1


This session brings together a world-class group of scientists who will give a range of presentations that focus on experimental and computational models to understand the role of drug transporters in drug toxicity and response with a particular focus on the blood brain barrier.

Co-Chair(s): Mikko Niemi (Finland) and Rada Savic (USA)
