*Who should attend? *
The PAGANZ meeting is the Australasian forum for scientists with a research
and professional interest in the use of the population approach in
pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. A strong focus of this meeting is
the application of population modelling and simulation techniques in the
experimental, clinical and regulatory settings of drug development.
This meeting is designed for scientists and clinicians working in basic or
clinical pharmacology research, pharmaceutical industry, regulatory bodies
and postgraduate students. The meeting combines hands on workshops led by
leaders in the field and a one and half day scientific meeting giving
researchers the opportunity to present and discuss their own work. This is
a very informal meeting and in the past has been very productive in helping
and guiding researchers in this important area of pharmacology and drug
Population Analysis Workshops (1.5 days)
PAGANZ runs 2 workshops (Beginners & Intermediate). The workshops consist
of lectures and hands-on exercises at a computer. During the hands-on
exercises, tutors will be available for consultation and assistance.
The Beginners Workshop introduces the theory and application of NONMEM.
The Intermediate Workshop will cover:
1. PBPK and extracorporeal clearance (1/2 day)
2. Model simplification (1/2 day)
3. Time to event analyses (1/2 day).
PAGANZ Scientific Meeting (1.5 days)
The PAGANZ meeting includes a variety of free communications that highlight
recent advances in the theory and application of the population approach to
pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics in different clinical settings and in
Each year PAGANZ invites an international renowned speaker to give the ISOP
lecture. This year the ISOP lecture will be given by Prof. Rob Bies,
Division of Clinical Pharmacology, Department of Medicine, School of
Medicine, Indiana University, Indianapolis, Indiana USA.
We look forward to seeing you next January!
