Workshop

In addition to the main conference, SOLVO will be hosting a Workshop on Tuesday, September 3 in which SOLVO scientists will provide training on the theory and practice of studying drug transporters in the lab, including in vitro methods for studying transporters, transporter study design, bioanalytics, transporter data evaluation and interpretation, and timing and application of transporter studies in drug development. Please note that this event is an optional add-on for attendees who have registered for the Transporter Conference.
