Hotel Waldhaus (5 star), Sils-Maria, Engadin Valley, Switzerland <http://ww=>
Date: Sunday - Friday
11 - 16 April, 2010<>

A Workshop, presenting advanced aspects and applications of pharmacokinetic=
s, pharmacodynamics and kinetic/dynamic data analysis in the medical and ph=
armaceutical sciences.
For whom intended:
The Workshop is designed for those who have a good working knowledge of bas=
ic concepts in pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and data analysis and who=
 now wish to extend their knowledge further. Emphasis will be placed on rel=
ating pharmacokinetics to underlying physiological processes and to pharmac=
odynamics, and on the analysis and modelling of pharmacokinetic and pharmac=
odynamic data.
Workshop content:
The mornings will be devoted to lectures; the afternoons to small-group wor=
kshops led by experienced tutors, in which participants will solve practica=
l problems and develop facility with the techniques and approaches discusse=
d in the lectures. The participants are encouraged to raise questions from =
their experience for discussion: time is specifically reserved for such inf=
ormal discussions.
A book, comprising lecture outlines, derivations, problem sets with answers=
, and additional reading material will be provided. Participants should com=
e with a scientific hand calculator.
Topics to be covered include:
* Empirical models for pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics
* Mechanistic models for pharmacokinetics (compartmental, physiologi=
cal) and pharmacodynamics (receptor theory) and combined PKPD (immediate an=
d delayed effects)
* Data analysis techniques for empirical or mechanistic modeling: poi=
nt estimates, confidence intervals, hypothesis tests
* Population pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics
* Disease progress and drug action modeling
* Optimal design
CHF5000 which includes all meals and accommodation at the Hotel Waldaus, Si=
ls Maria.
