Short course: Introduction to Bayesian PK-PD Modeling & Simulation

From: Bill Gillespie <billgillespie>
Date: Wed, 3 Mar 2010 18:00:38 -0500

Metrum Institute is offering the following hands-on workshop April =
27-29, 2010 in Philadelphia:

MI250: Introduction to Bayesian PK-PD Modeling & Simulation provides an =
introduction to Bayesian modeling theory and the practical use of =
WinBUGS and R for PK-PD applications. In addition to basic concepts, =
this course includes instruction on BUGSModelLibrary, an open-source =
tool developed by Metrum Institute. This library facilitates the =
implementation of population PK-PD models in WinBUGS for compartmental =
models described by algebraic or differential equations. Participants =
may apply the 3 credit hours from this course to the Metrum Institute =
Certificate Program in Pharmacometrics.

Prerequisites: Experience with PK-PD modeling and some familiarity with =
nonlinear regression, mixed-effects modeling and R (or S-Plus) is =
requred. Applicable MI courses include: MI 210 and MI212, or contact us.

Computer Hardware/Software: This course requires a Windows laptop =
computer with an available USB 2.0 port. All required software used for =
hands-on examples will be freeware/open-source software and simple =
instructions will be provided for users to configure their computers =
