Niagara Falls, NY
Our classic 3-day course on the concepts and applications of PK/PD modeling will be presented on a level suitable for those knowledgable in basic pharmacokinetics.
Registration now closed.
We present the theory and applications of pharmacodynamics. With diverse pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic modeling concepts it is possible to describe and predict the time course of drug effects under various physiological and pathological conditions. The study of PK/PD and Disease Progression relationships can be of considerable value in understanding drug action, summarizing extensive data, building a knowledge repository, finding optimal dosing regimens, and in making predictions under new circumstances. More advanced PK/PD models have evolved into Systems Pharmacology.
Special Note: We are offering this course and hotel venues adjacent to Niagara Falls with a large array of vacation activities including casinos. Bring your family!
