The New Year is a time for making resolutions and looking towards the
future. Perhaps you're thinking of ways to enhance your career in 2009?
The Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain and the Swedish
Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences are pleased to present the eleventh
Advanced Level Workshop on Pharmacokinetic - Pharmacodynamic Data
Analysis: A hands-on course using WinNonlin to be held at Madingley
Hall, Cambridge, UK from 17 to 21 May 2009.

Are you an advanced level research scientist in the pharmaceutical
industry, academia, a regulatory agency or a contract research firm with
a minimum of 3-5 years of experience in PK/PD analysis and modelling?
Have you attended the earlier introductory workshop on PKPD data
analysis? Do you have a working knowledge of WinNonlin that you want to
build on? Are you a primary and safety pharmacologist? If one of these
applies to you then you cannot afford to miss this course which will:

* Provide an interface between the computer analysis of PK and PD
data and physiological concepts.
* Equip you, through lecture sessions, with an advanced
understanding of all aspects of the subject, including pharmacodynamic
theory, interpretation of computer output, practical experimental
design, discrimination between rival models and combining data of
different sources.
* Give you the unique opportunity of access to the WinNonlin
modeling package to undertake hands-on exercises on real-life case
studies - allowing you to apply the concepts learnt in lecture sessions
to an extensive number of real-life problems and data-sets. Users of
software other than WinNonlin will also benefit from the methods
discussed in the lectures and hands-on sessions.
* Allow you one-to-one time with the expert course tutors in
problem-solving sessions. You are encouraged to bring your own
kinetic/dynamic data.
* Provide reference material for use after the course through a
full resource pack and relevant reference documents.
* Allow you to network with course tutors and other delegates from
the field through a full social programme.

Previous delegates of the course have said:
"I would like to thank the teachers for their patient, encouraging and
often painstaking focus on our comprehension"

"The lecturers were really helpful and were ready for any type of
question"

"This is certainly the best course that I have attended for several
years"

A full programme and registration form can be found here:
http://www.rpsgb.org/pdfs/sciconf080517.pdf. Register before 16 February
and receive a free copy of the textbook Pharmacokinetic/Pharmacodynamic
Data Analysis: Concepts and Applications.

We hope to see you at Madingley.

Kind regards,

Julie Churchill
