[NMusers] Metrum workshop on Bayesian PKPD Modeling Using Stan/Torsten at PAGE 2019

From: Bill Gillespie <>
Date: Fri, 12 Apr 2019 14:02:49 -0400

*Metrum Research Group* <> will hold a PAGE satellite
meeting on *Friday, 14 June, 13:30-17:30* where we will present a half-day
workshop entitled *"Getting Started with Bayesian PKPD Modeling Using
Stan/Torsten: Practical use of Stan and R for PKPD applications"*. The
location site will be near the PAGE 2019 meeting (Stockholm Waterfront
Congress Centre, Stockholm, Sweden).

We will demonstrate the use of Stan <>, RStan
<> and Torsten
<> for Bayesian PKPD
modeling. Stan is a flexible open-source software tool for Bayesian data
analysis using Hamiltonian Monte Carlo (HMC) simulation—a type of M=
simulation. Via the examples you will see how to implement nonlinear
regression models, nonlinear mixed effects models and additional
programming required for population PKPD models. The latter includes
learning how to deal with dosing and observation event schedules specified
using NONMEM conventions. Models requiring numerical solution of
differential equations will also be demonstrated. We will discuss the pros
and cons of Stan relative to other tools.

*Who: *Interested scientists with knowledge and experience in PKPD
modeling, nonlinear mixed effects modeling, use of R (or S-PLUS) and a
basic understanding of Bayesian principles.
