Dear Colleagues:


I am pleased to announce that the Sheiner Rowland Advanced Course in =
Pharmacokinetics & Pharmacodynamics will be held in 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 were not able to =
attend the course in D.C. 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


I hope to see you in Seoul.
