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 29th to May 31st, 2022, at the Marbach Castle Conference Centre, Oehningen, Lake Constance, Germany.

Summary of the 11th International Marbach Castle DDI Workshop

May 30th – June 1st, 2021

Despite the heartbreaking rescheduling due to 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, the International Drug-Drug Interaction (DDI) Workshop at Marbach Castle returned strong in 2021 with a stellar program and a high attendance.

Using a hybrid format, the 11th workshop was attended by an international audience of academic, industry, and regulatory scientists across multiple time zones. The combined virtual and physical attendance ranged from 60 to more than 100 throughout the two-day event, a powerful testimony of an exceptional program that offered top-notch presentations and unique opportunity for active dialogues. The Marbach Castle DDI Workshop series has now proven to be a true go-to event concerning DDIs for all of those with active interest in the field around the world.
