The DDI Workshop 2021 will take place on May 30th to June 1st 2021 in form of a “hybrid” format.

Welcome to the Marbach Castle Drug-Drug Interaction Workshop Series

The DDI workshop series is a non-profit programme to exchange research-based knowledge on drug-drug interactions (DDIs) among all interested stakeholders from pharmaceutical industry, regulatory authorities, academic and health care delivery backgrounds and perspectives.

The overall objective of the international Marbach Castle DDI Workshop series is to improve and disseminate the scientific knowledge about drug-drug interactions (incl. food-drug and herb-drug interactions), and to foster communication for efficient preclinical and clinical investigation of DDIs across disciplines and organisational boarders.

The goal is safer use of pharmaceutical products especially in geriatric and medically complex patient populations with various co-morbidities and increasing poly-pharmacotherapy.

The next DDI Workshop will take place on May 30th to June 1st, 2021, at the Marbach Castle Conference Centre, Oehningen, Lake Constance, Germany.



New Marbach DDI Faculty Member Allured

The Marbach DDI Faculty is proud and happy to report that with Dr. Ping Zhao (Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Seattle, USA) an outstandingly worthy representative could be allured to join the Faculty as successor of Hartmut Derendorf with immediate effect. Dr. Zhao is known as an excellent scientist of highest reputation with international recognition in the fields of regulatory science, model-informed drug development and evaluation of drug-drug interactions. Dr Zhao has been a contributor to the Marbach events several times and he is familiar with the set up and exclusive nature of this gathering. We are confident that Dr. Zhao will substantially contribute further under his new role to the maintenance of the high scientific and regulatory standards of our Workshop series and expansion of its global reach.

For further details please see Faculty / Ping Zhao.

Workshop Format 2021 and Creating Flexible Options for Attendance

Considering the current uncertainties around the course of the Covid-19 pandemic, including the spread of more infectious virus mutations on the one hand, and the rapid progress of the vaccination programs across the world on the other hand, we are currently planning for a “hybrid” meeting this year.

This means that attendees will have the opportunity to opt between taking part in person at Marbach Castle or a virtual attendance via video conference (Zooms).

For further details please go to Registration / Workshop.
