Applied BioMath, LLC Announces Speaker Lineup for Quantitative Systems Pharmacology Summit Cambridge 2023

Applied BioMath (, the industry-leader in providing model-informed drug discovery and development (MID3) support to help accelerate and de-risk therapeutic research and development (R&D), today announced the speaker lineup for their Quantitative Systems Pharmacology (QSP) Summit occurring Thursday, October 12, 2023 in Cambridge, MA.

In its sixth year, the QSP Summit continues to be a free conference sponsored by Applied BioMath for the purpose of fostering and growing an active community of participants interested in topics relevant to QSP. The speaker lineup features key industry and academic researchers who will share their unique insights of how mathematical modeling approaches, such as QSP, can support drug and therapeutic programs. To date, the speaker lineup includes:

  • Rajat Desikan, PhD, Director, Quantitative Clinical Pharmacology at GSK in collaboration with Tianjing (Kiko) Ren, PhD, Postdoctoral Fellow at University of Buffalo and GSK
  • Jennifer Fretland, PhD, Senior Director of DMPK at EQRx
  • Fereshteh Nazari, PhD, Translational PK/PD Modeler at Takeda
  • Weirong Wang, PhD, Senior Scientific Director at Janssen

There is also an open abstract submission to undergraduate, graduate, postdoctoral, faculty and staff, and industry in any computational biology field. Abstracts are considered for either a full-length presentation (30 minutes), lightning presentation (10 minutes), and/or poster presentation. There are awards for the top three academic posters.

"The QSP Summit is a great opportunity to bring together modelers and non-modelers alike and learn how we, as a community, talk and think about the results and value of modeling in R&D," said John Burke, PhD, Co-founder, President and CEO of Applied BioMath. "By sharing successes and challenges we hope to have an impact on inventing transformative medicines."
