Participants are encouraged to attend all conference days and present their work in the form of an oral presentation or poster.
Preliminary programme items:
- Successes and Failures of Extrapolating Drug Efficacy and Safety from Adults to the Pediatric Population
Our special abstract topic this year! In paediatric drug development, the topic of extrapolation of efficacy - and potentially also safety - information from the adult to the paediatric population is a recurring point of discussion. The approach to be taken and which studies to perform are guided by similarity between the paediatric and adult populations with respect to course of disease, response to the drug and exposure-response relationship. Planning and performing pediatric drug development is therefore not a simple task and in this special Oral abstract category, we invite you to submit and present not only successful but specifically also non-successful approaches and attempts, with a focus on what obstacles were experienced and how similarity between paediatrics and adults could be demonstrated. Oral abstract submissions on this topic are very welcome.
- The Lewis Sheiner Student Session
In 2005, the PAGE organising committee inaugurated the annual Lewis Sheiner Student Session, both to honour the memory of Lewis Sheiner and to highlight his lifetime passion for student education. Students who wish to be considered for this session should submit an extended abstract.
- The abstract must be structured with the following subheadings: Objectives / Methods / Results / Conclusion / References.
- There must be at least 6,000 but not more than 7,000 characters (including spaces) in the abstract text (excluding Title / Authors/ Affiliation and References).
- The submitted work must have been performed either as part of an MSc or PhD programme and/or will ultimately form part of a PhD thesis.
- Each year a rotating committee of three members, representative of the PAGE community, will judge who should receive the honour of presenting in the Lewis Sheiner Student Session. The committee consists of one volunteering member of the PAGE Scientific Organizing Committee (SOC), or Advisors, and the other 2 members are nominated by the SOC/Advisors and are regular PAGE participants who have made substantial contributions to PAGE in the past. Diversity and inclusiveness in representation are prioritized by the SOC/Advisors when constituting the review committee annually.
- If selected, the student will automatically receive a 300€ travel grant. A permanent list of students, with links to their presentation, will be maintained on the web site.
- The Stuart Beal Methodology Session
As a tribute to Stuart Beal, there is a Stuart Beal Methodology Session. The organising committee will choose presenters from the submitted abstracts.
The abstract submission deadline is Sunday 19 March 2023, and is the same for all submitted abstracts (Lewis Sheiner Student Session, orals, and posters) and there will be no option for late submissions. In practice, this means that any new abstract entered into the system after 23:59 CET on 19 March 2023 will be removed by the system administrator. The PAGE organising committee cares about the quality of all abstracts, and sufficient time is required for judging them.
