Pharmacology for the Future -Science, Drug Development and Therapeutics-

July1(Sun)-6(Fri),2018 Kyoto International Conference Center Kyoto, Japan

Approved Satellite Symposia

As of August, 2017

Date and time:
Friday, June 29, 2018 1:30pm - 5:30pm
Korean Brain Research Institute
61 Cheomdan-ro, Dong-gu, Daegu, 41068 Republic of Korea
Purpose of the Session:
Brain mapping is the study of the anatomy and function of the brain and spinal cord through the use of imaging, immunohistochemistry, molecular & optogenetics, stem cell and cellular biology, engineering, neurophysiology and nanotechnology. The symposia is aimed to have neuroscientists understand brain mapping and related technologies/ therapies for development of life saving diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

Memorial Hall
Purpose of the Session:
Systems pharmacology aims to holistically understand genetic, molecular, cellular, and clinical mechanisms of drug actions through data-driven predictions. This symposium focuses on the use of big data from real world medications, such as self-reports of adverse events, in generating novel hypotheses of drug actions. Dr. Kaneko introduces a combination of data mining and experimental verification in elucidating preventive treatment for drug adverse events. Dr. Shu will talk about a strategy of integrated analysis on clinical records and drug off-targets based on statistical and structural analyses. Dr. Tatonetti will overview the use of systems pharmacology and real-world health records for pharmacovigilance. Dr. Smaïl-Tabbone will present integrative machine-learning for understanding side-effect profiles. Finally, Dr. Yamaguchi will present the use of artificial intelligence 'Watson' in optimizing cancer treatments. These impose a great challenge on model management, integration, and translation of systems pharmacology.
