Presenter(s): Mike K Smith

Time: 12:00 pm EDT
Background: The Drug Disease Model Resources (DDMoRe) consortium has been created to improve the quality, efficiency and cost effectiveness of Model-Informed Drug Discovery & Development.
In model-informed drug development, information from a wide array of sources can be integrated into models to describe and predict the behavior of complex disease/biological systems and drug actions. The consortium will deliver a platform as resource for models and knowledge sharing, based on standards to ensure consistency of evidence. Academia, industries and health authorities can rely on this platform in making decisions about development, approval of new medicines and improvement of therapy with existing drugs.
DDMoRe will deliver a model repository (repository.ddmore.eu), interoperability framework and tools, workflow tools and training courses on model informed drug discovery and development (MID3) using the DDMoRe tools.
You can find out more about DDMoRe on ddmore.eu.
In this first webinar, I would aim to introduce you to the DDMoRe repository and show you how you could use a model from the repository (Simeoni tumour growth inhibition model - http://repository.ddmore.eu/model/DDMODEL00000006) to address research questions.
