Dear all,


This is a reminder that the Uppsala Pharmacometrics group will be having =
a NONMEM Workshop for intermediate and advanced users immediately before =
the PAGE meeting in St. Petersburg in June entitled:


Pharmacokinetic-Pharmacodynamic modeling of Continuous and Categorical =
data in NONMEM – June 21-23


Don’t miss out! For more information see below or visit =

Best regards





Brief information:


The course presents modeling strategies, techniques and implementations =
(using NONMEM) for the handling of PKPD information in population =
models. PD models for continuous data as well as binary, ordered =
categorical, count and time to event data will be discussed. The course =
will include new models and methods for evaluation of models. The course =
will consist of both lectures and hands-on computer exercises using =
NONMEM VI, PsN and Xpose 4. The participants will be provided with a =
library of NONMEM code for the entire field as well as self-instructive =
material for further studies and exploration of examples for a wide =
range of PKPD models applied in different disease areas.


The course will be given by Prof. Mats Karlsson, Dr Lena Friberg, Dr =
Andrew Hooker and Dr Ulrika Simonsson.


A prerequisite for the course is experience with performing NONMEM =
analyses and basic knowledge of PK/PD models.


Course Fees:


Regular fee: € 2,300

Student/Post-doc fee: € 1,250


Registration fee includes: hardcopy folder, extensive electronic =
material including lectures, exercises, programs (PsN and Xpose), =
additional self-study material including hands-on and solutions. Morning =
and afternoon refreshments, lunch and a welcome reception are included.


Attendance is strictly limited to 50 with a limited “reduced =
fee” places available for students and post-docs. Registration =
and student/post-doc fees will be offered on the basis of first come, =
