Meet the Experts Transporter Conference Budapest, 25 and 26-27 April 2018


This April we invite you to the 8th Meet the Experts Transporter Conference in Budapest. Since 2014 the Meet the Expert Transporter conferences have been a continuing success. Hundreds of attendees have enjoyed talks from the best Transporter Scientists in the world. The conferences cover a wide range of topics, far beyond the role of transporters in Drug-Drug Interactions, which other transporter meetings mostly focus on. Previous meetings included symposia such as Methods and Models, The Physiological Function of Transporters, The Role of Transporters in Disease, Transporter-Enzyme Interplays, Transporter interactions of natural and synthetic compounds, Transporters and biomarkers and Transporters and regulation.

The meeting’s main conclusions, presented novelties and future directions are summarized by Peter Krajcsi, SOLVO’s CSO. The Meet the Experts Transporter conferences are relatively small meetings with 70-100 participants, and offer plenty of opportunities for networking with colleagues in the field or personal interaction with the speakers. Being held in Budapest, the 2018 spring meeting also provides a unique opportunity for you to meet SOLVO’s scientists, project managers and study directors.

Last but not least, Budapest is one of the highest rated cities to visit in Europe. This is your chance to combine work and fun, visiting the famous coffee houses, spas and museums besides diving into the world of Transporters!

Conference will be held at Continental Hotel Budapest.
