Studies in preclinical and clinical pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and toxicology typically involve collection of various types of experimental data in individual and groups of biologic preparations, animals and human subjects. Appropriate methods of analysis of such data requires an understanding of the underlying science and well as use of biostatistics, computational methods, and pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic modeling. Scientists with proficiency in pharmacometrics can assist in the design and analysis of protocols and studies related to drug therapy questions and provide insights into the processes which control the time course of drug concentrations and clinical, pharmacologic and toxicologic responses.
