Subject: RE: NONMEM workshop, 29 September to 3 October 2003, in Aix en Provence,

EMF Consulting France is pleased to announce the NONMEM Practical training workshop for modelling PK/PD Data to be held at EMF Consulting, Aix en Provence, 6 October to 10 October 2008, 8:30 to 5:15 every day.

This course is largely based on the NONMEM manuals, tutorials and workshops run previously. Minimum theoretical lectures are given to allow a naïve NONMEM user to perform the exercises during the practical hands-on sessions. The course is directed at pharmacokineticists, clinical pharmacologists, and statisticians in pharmaceutical research.

This year, we'll use the current version of NONMEM VI, with the pre-and post-processing interfaces PSN and Xpose, so there should be some additional fun!
We'll accept up to 10 trainees only, 5 seats are already paid. English is the course language, EMF site is non-smoking and fully accessible. Prerequisites: Basic understanding of PK, PK/PD and clinical statistics.
