Dear all,

On behalf of the International Society of Pharmacometrics (ISoP), it is my great pleasure to announce the establishment of the Asian Pharmacometrics Network affiliated with ISoP (APN-ISoP), which will take effect as of January 2018. APN-ISoP is being established as an Asian chapter affiliated with ISoP and aims to develop and promote pharmacometrics in Asian region through the joint effort with ISoP.

A brief explanation of the background of APN-ISoP is as follows. During WCoP2012 in Seoul, Korea, a group of Asian leaders in PK/PD from Japan, China, Twain, Singapore, India and Korea formed the Advisory Committee (AC) to start a discussion to develop and promote pharmacometrics in Asian region. Through this joint effort, AC members reached an agreement to establish APN. In doing so, 3 more countries of Thailand, Malaysia, and Vietnam joined, resulting in 9 countries in total.

Rooted in this effort, APN-ISoP has been established through 3 years’ collaborative effort by ISoP and APN since my joining ISoP board as a board member representing Asia region in 2015. We expect that more Asian countries will join APN-ISoP soon, including Myannmar, Laos, Cambodia, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh.

Of several APN-ISoP related activities, the Asian Conference on Pharmacometrics (ASCoP), the bi-annual regional meeting organized by APN-ISoP, will be the biggest, and we are pleased to inform that the first ASCoP will be held in November 8-9, 2018 in Seoul, preceded by pre-conference workshops in November 6-7.

APN-ISoP website is currently under development and a new announcement will be made when it is completed, with more detail on ASCoP2018 and APN-ISoP.

In the meantime, please mark the date of ASCoP2018 in your calendar.

Best regards,
