WCoP Workshop: Open Source Pharmacometrics Open for registration

From: Matthew Fidler <matthew.fidler>
Date: Wed, 5 Feb 2020 13:03:09 -0600

An open-source Pharmacometrics’s workflow in R: from exploration (x=
Gx) to
model building (nlmixr) and diagnostics (ggPMX)

Sponsored by Novartis and co-hosted by Pharmacometrics Africa
<https://www.pmxafrica.org/>, NPC

Workshop target audience:

Pharmacometricians/modelers with basic knowledge on model building,
evaluation and qualification. Basic knowledge of writing, executing R
scripts is advantageous.

Workshop faculty:

Fariba Khanshan, Novartis Pharmacometrics, Cambridge, USA
Matt Fidler, Novartis Pharmacometrics, Fort Worth, USA
Irina Baltcheva, Novartis Pharmacometrics, Basel, Switzerland

Overview:

The workshop will provide a tutorial on three open–source R package=
s
currently under development at Novartis, supporting the pharmacometrics
workflow in exploring and modelling clinical data:

   - Exploration of the data using the Exploratory Graphics (xGx) package,
   available on GitHub (https://opensource.nibr.com/xgx/).
   - Population PK and PKPD modelling of the data using nlmixr (
   www.nlmixr.org <http://github.com/nlmixrdevelopment/nlmixr>). nlmixr
   builds on the ODE solving in the RxODE package, by implementing paramete=
r
   estimation algorithms like nlme, SAEM and FOCE with interaction.
   - Model building and validation using ggPMX, a library of reproducible
   diagnostic plots available on CRAN and on Github (https
   <https://github.com/ggPMXdevelopment/ggPMX>://
   <https://github.com/ggPMXdevelopment/ggPMX>
   github.com/ggPMXdevelopment/ggPMX).

The combination of the three open-source R packages provides the
pharmacometrics modelling community the opportunity to reduce the learning
curve needed to become proficient on each of the different tasks using a
stepwise framework.

Fees:

$25 / R400
