We would like to bring to your attention that we still have some seats avai=
lable for the 8th Annual Introductory Pharmacometric Training Course on

'Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Protein Therapeutics - Concepts a=
nd Hands-On Modeling and Simulation'

will be held at the facilities of the University of Tennessee Health Scienc=
e Center in Memphis, TN, USA, on April 16-20, 2018.

The 5-day course continues on the successful concept used in previous year =
offerings. It will introduce participants to basic principles in the pharma=
cokinetic and pharmacodynamic evaluation of novel therapeutic proteins and =
will provide opportunities for hands-on PK and PK/PD modeling and simulatio=
n examples relevant to therapeutic proteins. Topics include target-mediated=
 drug disposition, tissue and tumor penetration, interspecies scaling, firs=
t-in-human dose selection, immunogenicity, model-based drug development, sp=
ecial populations, biosimilars, and drug-drug interactions. The target audi=
ence comprises pharmaceutical scientists from industry, academia and regula=
tory agencies with basic knowledge in PK and PK/PD that had only limited ex=
posure to the challenges associated with developing therapeutic proteins an=
d that would like to receive a comprehensive overview or refresher on the P=
K and PK/PD of this class of compounds.

Although the course includes hands-on exercises that are performed individu=
ally or in small groups, participants do NOT need to have prior experience =
with any particular PK/PD analysis software.

For more detailed information on the preliminary course program and faculty=
, as well as on the registration process, please visit<

We hope you will join us in April in Memphis!
