Workshop Invitation – Half-day workshop on 11th June 2013 at University of Strathclyde (Glasgow)

 

Physiomics will present a half-day workshop on “The Prediction of Cardiotoxicity Using In Silico Tools”, ahead of the 2013 PAGE meeting.

The workshop will start with a review and demonstration of the models currently available for analysing cardiac toxicity, from effects on individual myocyte action potentials to Torsade de Pointes risk categorisation. This general introduction will be followed by the presentation of Physiomics’ own cardiotoxicity prediction approach. The workshop will also include an interactive session, where participants will have the opportunity to predict the cardiotoxic risk for a set of drugs, based on in vitro assay data (provided in advance), and to compare their predictions with those made by published models and Physiomics’ technology.
