An advanced course presenting concepts and applications of
pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and kinetic/dynamic data analysis in the
medical and pharmaceutical sciences.

 Course details:


*For whom intended*:
The Course 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 modeling of pharmacokinetic and
pharmacodynamic data.

*Course content:*

The mornings will be devoted to lectures; the late 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 informal consultations.

A course manual, comprising lecture outlines, derivations, problem sets
with answers, and additional reading material will be provided in an
electronic format. Participants should come with a scientific hand

*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
