Dear Nmusers,

We try not to bombard this distribution list with too many
communications from CPT: Pharmacometrics & Systems Pharmacology
(CPT:PSP), but thought it would be appropriate to draw your attention to
various Tutorials on the foundations of Pharmacometrics that have been
published recently:

Basic Concepts in Population modeling and Model-Based Drug Development
(D. Mould and R. Upton):

Part 1:

Part 2:

A Time to Event Tutorial for Pharmacometricians (N. Holford):

Modeling and Simulation Workbench for NONMEM: Tutorial on Pirana, PsN,
and Xpose (R. Keizer, M. Karlsson and A. Hooker):

Establishing Best Practices and Guidance in Population Modeling: an
Experience with an Internal Population Pharmacokinetic Analysis Guidance
(W. Byon et al.):

As explained in a recent Editorial
<> ), a
CPT:PSP Tutorial is intended as an educational article providing
practical tutorial on tools, methodologies, and approaches. Tutorials
aim to increase the awareness and potential of Pharmacometrics and
Systems Pharmacology outside the disciplines, introduce methodology to
newcomers interested in model-based approaches, and provide further
training and specialized guides to those already working in the field.
The open-access format of CPT:PSP also provides an excellent platform by
allowing efficient distribution to researchers worldwide. For most
Tutorials, model code and example datasets will be available as
supplementary material, allowing readers to practice the case studies

More Tutorials will become available this year, the next one on
Physiologically-Based Pharmacokinetics (PBPK). New articles are
published weekly at <>

Kind regards,

Piet van der Graaf, Editor-in Chief
