Workshop on Population PK/PD Analysis, Oct. 14-18 2013

EMF Consulting France part of PhinC Development is pleased to announce the "NONMEM Practical training workshop" to be held in Aix en Provence, 14-18 OCTOBER 2013.

This course is largely based on the NONMEM manuals, tutorials and varied workshops run previously.

Minimum theoretical lectures are given to allow a naïve NONMEM user to perform the exercises run during the practical hands-on sessions. The course is directed at pharmacokineticists, clinical pharmacologists, and statisticians in pharmaceutical research.
Prerequisites: Basic understanding of PK, PK/PD and clinical statistics.

Instructors: Eliane Fuseau, PhD,

Course Agenda:

Lectures/ Discussion themes (~16 hours)
Day 1     Basic concepts of pharmacokinetic modelling,
Introduction to population modelling
Day 2    Modelling and precision, sources of variability,
NMTRAN control records
Day 3    NONMEM modelling strategy and documentation (protocol, analysis plan, report), Design, data, databases, logistic constraints, diagnostics, validation
Day 4    Model selection, Conditional estimation, Simulations
Day 5    PK/PD modelling, strategy for drug development (why and when), use in market application (what)

Hands-on (~24 hours): start on day 2, alternating with lectures. Full problems are resolved and interpreted including modelling PK in individual, and in population, exploring covariates, interpretation, PK and PK/PD modelling, PK/PD simulations. NONMEM will be used on PCs with the interface Visual-NM, which allows easy creation of tables and graphs. We'll accept only up to 16 trainees

Registration fees: €3000 for private companies and €2250 for academics. Registration includes coffee breaks and lunch every day, plus one diner on Tuesday.
