Dear Colleagues:


I am pleased to announce that the Sheiner Rowland Advanced Course in
Pharmacokinetics & Pharmacodynamics will be held in Yonsei University,
Seoul, Korea, on 7-11 September, 2009. This is the second meeting in
2009 in this Course, following that in Washington, D.C., in May 3-8, and
the lecturers and the contents will be the same. For those of you who
are interested but cannot attend the meeting in May are urged to
consider this one. The course description and registration details are
found at <>




Dates: Monday, September 7 - Friday, September 11, 2009

Yonsei University Health System, 134 Shinchon-dong, Seodaemun-gu, Seoul,


A Workshop, presenting advanced aspects and applications of
pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and kinetic/dynamic data analysis in
the medical and pharmaceutical sciences.


For whom intended:
The Workshop is designed for those who have a good working knowledge of
basic concepts in pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and data analysis
and who now wish to extend their knowledge further. Emphasis will be
placed on relating pharmacokinetics to underlying physiological
processes and to pharmacodynamics, and on the analysis and modelling of
pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data.

Workshop content:
The mornings will be devoted to lectures; the afternoons to small-group
workshops led by experienced tutors, in which participants will solve
practical problems and develop facility with the techniques and
approaches discussed in the lectures. The participants are encouraged to
raise questions from their experience for discussion: time is
specifically reserved for such informal discussions.

Workshop manual:
A course manual, comprising lecture outlines, derivations, problem sets
with answers, and additional reading material will be provided.
Participants should come with a scientific hand calculator.

Topics to be covered include:
Empirical models for pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics
Mechanistic models for pharmacokinetics (compartmental, physiological)
and pharmacodynamics (receptor theory)
   and combined PKPD (immediate and delayed effects)
Data analysis techniques for empirical or mechanistic modeling: point
estimates, confidence intervals, hypothesis tests.
Population pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.
Disease progress and drug action modeling
Optimal design
