The work presented should involve innovative new method development or application in the areas of systems biology, translational medicine, knowledge management, computational biology, metabolomics, predictive ADME, predictive toxicology or bioinformatics. Studies including experimental work in medicinal chemistry, screening, experimental toxicology, pre-clinical evaluation, lead optimisation and translational medicine are welcome. Abstracts (300-500 words) should be submitted to innovationwell -[at]- douglasconnect.com by 31 July 2008, and be accompanied by a short biography of the presenting author (300-500 words). Abstracts approved by the scientific organizing committee will be selected for scheduling on the conference program and in meeting poster sessions. Authors will be notified of acceptance as soon as a review of submitted materials takes place and at the latest by 15 August 2008. Bursary Bursary Awards will be used to support the attendance of a selection of academic young investigators at the meeting and workshops. Applicants should be working in a relevant area of research related to life science, healthcare, and drug product discovery and development at the postdoctoral, graduate student and senior undergraduate levels. To apply for the bursary please send an email with a) your abstract and biography (300-500 words each), b) your CV of 1-2 pages, c) a short description of your interests and career motivations related to R&D (300-500 words) to innovationwell -[at]- douglasconnect.com by 31 July 2008. The recipients of the bursary awards will be selected based on an evaluation of the quality and innovation of the described research and the potential positive impact of attendance at the meeting on their research and career progress. Authors will be notified of acceptance by 15 August 2008. Poster Session All InterAction Meeting registrants are eligible to present a Conference Poster. The Poster Sessions will take place in the evenings in Thomas Great Hall on campus, where refreshments and dinner are also served.
