Language; English
Maximum capacity; 16 participants

At the end of the course, the participant can: 
-Understand the basic theory of population PK and PK/PD models. 
-Understand how population PK/PD models are developed. 
-Understand the use of population PK/PD modelling in drug research and drug development. 
-Judge, interpret, and implement population PK/PD models in literature.
