Certara Scientists Participate in 9 Presentations at the North American ISSX Meeting

Diverse agenda underscores the widespread adoption of PBPK approaches throughout the drug development process

PRINCETON, NJ – Oct. 19, 2015 – Certara®, the global biosimulation technology-enabled drug development company, today announced that its scientists are presenting 9 seminars and poster sessions at the twentieth International Society for the Study of Xenobiotics (ISSX). This annual ISSX conference will be held in Orlando, FL from Oct. 18-22, 2015. A xenobiotic is a chemical that does not occur naturally in an organism, such as a drug or a pesticide.

“The mission of ISSX is to uncover the metabolism and disposition of chemicals in biological systems. This focus dovetails perfectly with our Simcyp® Simulator technology, which uses mechanistic approaches to predict the effects of drugs in virtual populations,” said Certara Chief Marketing Officer Ellen Leinfuss.
