Join Us for the 2020 ACCP Annual Meeting (#2020ACCP)!

"Translating Clinical Pharmacology Research into Patient-centered Care

We invite you to join us for the 2020 Annual Meeting of the American College of Clinical Pharmacology
®, Translating Clinical Pharmacology Research into Patient-centered Care, September 20 – 22, 2020 at the Bethesda N Marriott Hotel & Conf Ctr. Consistent with ACCP’s commitment to excellence in science and education, the 2020 Annual Meeting Program Committee, co-chaired by Drs. Ayyappa Chaturvedula and Honghui Zhou, has worked diligently to provide a diverse and exceptional educational program that meets the needs of healthcare professionals and scientists with an interest in one or more of the myriad of applications of clinical pharmacology ranging from research and drug development to patient care. Sessions include five Pre-meeting Workshops and twenty-one Symposia that include a diverse, global group of Faculty Speakers that span the breadth of academia, industry, regulatory agencies, consulting companies and clinical specialties. The educational programming is designed to encompass presentations on high-impact topics and is organized into tracks that allow Attendees to uniquely tailor content selection to their individual interests. Invited Keynote, Steven D. Gore, MD, will present on “20 Years of ‘Epigenetic’ Cancer Therapy – Who Are We Fooling?”

A series of special Student, Trainee & Early-stage Professional-focused programs will provide exposure to innovative science and career development opportunities. Of particular note is a panel discussion on generational differences in communication to help you achieve success at all stages of your career, plus a Pre-meeting Workshop on beginner level principles of population pharmacokinetics & fundamentals of NONMEM® software.

Poster Sessions, held during Sunday and Monday Evening Receptions, will focus on new findings and preliminary data presented by a wide spectrum of Attendees.

New at the 2020 ACCP Annual Meeting and included in the cost of registration, we invite you to join us at the Sunday evening PharmaFete following the Opening Reception. During PharmaFete you will enjoy a DJ, photo booth, Vegas-style game tables, light dinner fare & beer/wine. Enjoy the chance to socialize and network during Evening Receptions and Poster Sessions, including new Faculty in Focus events providing up close access to select Faculty, at twice-daily tea/coffee breaks, at the Lunch & Awards Sessions and the Annual Business Meeting, open to anyone interested in learning about ACCP.

Also new in 2020 is our community outreach program, providing an opportunity for ACCP Members & meeting Attendees to make an impact in a uniquely personal way in the community where the meeting is held. This year, the recipient program is The Children’s Inn at the National Inst of Health (NIH), a residential facility that allows families with seriously ill children under care at the NIH to stay free of charge. We hope you will join us in the effort to support this worthwhile cause!

For those who have never had the opportunity to attend an ACCP Annual Meeting, join us in 2020 and see for yourself how ACCP hosts an outstanding educational and scientific event that provides healthcare professionals and scientists with a forum to exchange knowledge and ideas that promote and expand the value of clinical pharmacology in healthcare and drug development. Registration is now open! Remember to register early for the Pre-meeting Workshops, as seating is limited.

The Bethesda N Marriott Hotel & Conf Ctr, an exceptional property, is perfect for comfortable accommodations and beautiful, high-tech meeting space. It is easily accessible from the White Flint Metrorail Station on the Red Line or is an easy ride from any of the three airports in the Washington/Baltimore area. For your benefit, accommodations at the special rate of $179 have been negotiated. The cutoff date for reservations at this group rate is August 28, 2020.

ACCP is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide credits for our educational courses.
