Interview with Maria Shipkova, IATDMCT Director of Education and Communications Committee Vice-Chair

This month we hear from Dr. Maria Shipkova, with whom I have had the pleasure of collaborating in the Communications Committee since the 2011 IATDMCT Congress in Stuttgart, where Maria and her colleagues were very gracious hosts. During this collaboration I have seen how hard Maria has worked to contribute to IATDMCT member services, from her previous work as Compass Editor to her current role as Director of Education, as well as participating in the Immunosuppressive Drugs scientific committee.  It’s a pleasure to hear from Maria, and find out about her work life and current projects, especially since her story exemplifies a successful and transversal clinical TDM and toxicology service.

Interview with Roger Jelliffe

It was a real honour to hear from doctor Roger Jelliffe this month: if we talk about IATDMCT heroes, he would be closer to a super hero status. Dr Jelliffe shares his extraordinary career in modelling drug behaviour, and its use for dose adaptation and personalization of therapy, mixing in ideas along the way from nuclear science, aerospace engineering and astronomy.

The June 2016 Compass

Many thanks to the Compass Editorial Team:

I really enjoyed the June 2016 Compass. Have you read it yet?


I thought I would briefly overview the reports as a reminder of this fantastic space we have for sharing amongst our members. The Compass is a member only benefit, so we recommend sharing the news with your colleagues who might not be members.  You could forward this blog post, or the monthly E-News, or boldly send them an IATDMCT membership application form!
