A 2 Day Introductory Workshop on Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics
Canberra, Australia
4th & 5th December 2012

[Please note that an introductory workshop on NONMEM is being offered on 6th and
7th December at the same location. These workshops will run back to back.]

This 2 day work shop will be run by leading experts in the area of
pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. The workshop will cover basic aspects of
pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and bioequivalence with pharmaceutical and
clinical applications.

For Whom Intended. This course is intended for pharmaceutical scientists,
pharmacologists, pharmacists and physicians wishing to understand and apply
pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic principles in their practice. Only minimal
prior knowledge of pharmacokinetics is assumed.

Workshop Content The Workshop is divided into 3 parts (1) pharmacokinetics, (2)
pharmacodynamics and (3) bioequivalence. Each part will contain a mixture of
lectures and workshops.

An electronic manual, comprising lecture outlines and relevant workshop
materials, will be provided. Participants should come with a scientific hand

Topics to be covered include:
Pharmacokinetics: Clearance, volume, half-life, drug metabolism/interactions.
Pharmacodynamics: Emax, C50, immediate effects, delayed effects and disease
Bioequivalence: Absorption, rate and extent, and bioequivalence analysis.
