Drug Metabolism and Disposition


Drug Metabolism and Disposition is pleased to announce an upcoming thematic issue on novel models of drug metabolism, transport, and toxicity, edited by Drs. Aarti Sawant-Basak and R. Scott Obach. With a growing emphasis on personalized medicine, the use of human relevant models (in vitro and in vivo) to predict and understand the disposition of new therapeutics is ever increasing. Some of these models include (but are not limited to) usage of human derived primary cell co-cultures, human pluripotent stem cell derived systems, micro physiological models of different organ systems, humanized animal models, protein/RNA engineering technologies to study metabolism and transporters, etc.

Thus this issue will include original research articles and minireviews on such newer and evolving models of metabolism, transport, and toxicity of small molecule therapeutics.

This issue will be published in September of 2018. The deadline for submissions is June 1, 2018.

Update to Expertise Terms Requirements

The Bench>Press sites for ASPET's journals now require a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 10 keywords for submitted manuscripts. Those who serve as reviewers and editorial board members must have a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 20 expertise terms. This has been done for DMD, JPET, MolPharm, and Pharmacological Reviews to enhance the search for reviewers and better match them to manuscripts. If your record does not have the needed number of expertise terms, you will be asked to provide them from the expertise term list when you sign in to the system. Thank you for your help in updating your record, and thank you for your service to ASPET's journals!
