Final Announcement:

We would like to bring to your attention that we still have some seats avai=
lable for the 5th Annual Introductory Pharmacometric Training Course on

'Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Protein Therapeutics - Concepts a=
nd Hands-On Modeling and Simulation'

The course will be held at the facilities of the University of Tennessee He=
alth Science Center in Memphis, TN, USA, on April 13-17, 2015.

The 5-day course continues on the successful concept used in previous year =
offerings. It will introduce participants to basic principles in the pharma=
cokinetic and pharmacodynamic evaluation of novel therapeutic proteins and =
will provide opportunities for hands-on PK and PK/PD modeling and simulatio=
n examples relevant to therapeutic proteins. Topics include target-mediated=
 drug disposition, tissue and tumor penetration, interspecies scaling, firs=
t-in-human dose selection, immunogenicity, model-based drug development, sp=
ecial populations, biosimilars, and drug-drug interactions. The target audi=
ence comprises pharmaceutical scientists from industry, academia and regula=
tory agencies with basic knowledge in PK and PKPD that had only limited exp=
osure to the challenges associated with developing therapeutic proteins and=
 that would like to receive a comprehensive overview or refresher on the PK=
 and PKPD of this class of compounds. Although the course includes hands-on=
 exercises, participants do NOT need to have prior experience with any part=
icular PKPD analysis software.

For more detailed information on the preliminary course program and faculty=
, as well as on the registration process, please visit<>

We hope you will join us in April in Memphis!
