Centre for Human Drug Research: Introduction course to Population PK and PK/PD modeling with NONMEM
This hands-on course is an introduction to population modeling for analyzing pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data and discusses the general concept of population modeling and the application in drug development. It includes a series of hands-on examples, which enables the attendees to learn to work with NONMEM and R to solve standard pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic problems, including data file preparation, model coding, and visualization/interpretation of the results.
Target Audience
The course is intended for people who have basic knowledge of PK/PD concepts and data analysis and wish to apply/extend their knowledge and skills on pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics in drug development.
Course Objectives
Aim of the course is to familiarize the participants with basics of population PK/PD modeling and to train the participants in working with NONMEM (Non Linear Mixed Effects Modeling) to conduct population PK and PK/PD data analyses.
Instructor Dr. Jasper Stevens (JStevens
