There are still slots open for the Minnesota Pharmacometrics Summer School.
Our intent is to provide graduate students and post-doctoral trainees an
opportunity to increase their skills in applying nonlinear mixed effects
modeling, share data analysis experiences with other trainees in a
collaborative environment, and develop communication skills in describing
their work. The course will consist of lectures, discussions, and hands-on
exercises. The link to the application form is below; you may find you need

be presented in an introductory course or workshop. Topics will include
simulation with mrgsolve; estimating parameter precision; incorporating
between occasion variability; mixture modeling; visual predictive checks;
and introductions to modeling biologics; covariate modeling strategies; and
approaches to PK/PD modeling.

FORMAT: The format will consist of lectures, hands-on sessions, group work,
and presentations, with a focus on a basic understanding of the topic,
implementation of appropriate code, and interpretation of results.
