Who are the course faculty?

The course will be taught by a group of young and dynamic faculty experienced in the area of pharmacometrics:

- Coen van Hasselt, Research scholar, Netherlands Cancer Institute, The Netherlands

- Martin Johnson, Research Scholar, University of Groningen, The Netherlands

- Surulivel Rajan Mallayasamy, Assistant Professor, Manipal University

How is the workshop planned?

The hands-on workshop provides an introduction to pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data analysis using NONMEM, and comprises both lectures and computer sessions. Additionally, participants will have the possibility to present and discuss their work during a poster session.

Each participant will be allocated a computer during the hands on sessions to maximize their learning experience. Sessions will be interactive and problem-based using real datasets.

This course can be taken by beginners with no previous experience of NONMEM, but we also welcome those who have limited past experience and wish to expand their knowledge base, since the present course will also cover some intermediate level components. Additionally, introductions to the PsN toolkit for NONMEM and the Pirana modelling environment will be covered.

Workshop Themes
