Q3 2020 Activities
The 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting of the American College of Clinical Pharmacology® was a big success! ACCP is proud to be the only clinical pharmacology-focused society to successfully execute a virtual meeting in 2020, consistently delivering on its Mission & Vision to provide exceptional educational events.
 
A global audience heard presentations from 90 international Faculty Speakers who participated in three Pre-meeting Workshops, the Special COVID-19 Session and 19 Symposia on a series of topics ranging from research and drug development to patient care. The Invited Keynote Steven D. Gore, MD gave an engaging presentation on "20 years of ‘Epigenetic’ Cancer Therapy - Who are We Fooling?". Additionally, 93 scientific posters were presented from authors from around the world. The Attendee Survey indicated 95% of respondents were pleased with the overall educational content and 87% had a positive experience with the virtual platform. 83% of Faculty Speakers would accept an invitation to speak at a future ACCP Annual Meeting and 100% of Poster Presenter respondents were satisfied with how Posters were displayed on the virtual platform.

Be sure to save the date for the 2021 ACCP Annual Meeting, September 12 - 14, 2021 at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel. We look forward to seeing you there!
