Mission Statement

The mission of the Delaware Valley DMDG is to provide a common forum for the many different disciplines involved in drug metabolism research.


The greater Delaware Valley contains one of the greatest concentrations of pharmaceutical scientists in the United States from academia and industry. These scientists are at the forefront of global biomedical research.

The Delaware valley Drug Metabolism Discussion Group (DMDG) was organized in 1975 and the first symposium was held May 11, 1977. The DMDG holds three to four meetings and the Robert S. Rozman Memorial Symposium each year, and all are designed to bring nationally renowned speakers to address the group, provide a means by which scientists may discuss current topics in the drug metabolism sciences, and offer an abundance or opportunities for professional interaction. The continued growth of the organization attests to the relevance and utility of the group. Participants currently include scientists from most of the major pharmaceutical companies in the Philadelphia area as well a many local universities and laboratories.
