|PK/PD - General Concepts and Advanced Material|
This workshop will not focus on antiinfectives like the "Pre-Conference-ISAP-Workshop" on Wednesday, September 08, 2004. The Tuesday / Wednesday workshop "PK/PD - General Concepts" deals with general principles applicable to antiinfectives and non-antiinfectives. Topics include population modeling with parametric and non-parametric methods, Monte Carlo simulations, dose individualization and optimization, optimal sampling theory, influence of demographic factors on pharmacokinetics, pharmacometrics, and related topics.
Please note our new parallel session on "Applications in Anticancer Drug Therapy" on Wednesday afternoon.
Participants will be grouped into a "beginner - intermediate" and an "advanced-expert" group. There will be a special introduction on Monday, September 06, 2004, and on Tuesday morning to learn the basic background in anatomy, physiology, biochemistry and pharmacy for chemists, physicists, computer scientists and other researchers.
This workshop also covers intermediate and advanced topics
in pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and the drug development process.
The advanced topics in the workshops are intended for course participants
who work in these fields or around and may improve their skills by listening
to and discussing with the lecturers, who are world experts in their fields.
Thus, we would very much like to invite also experienced scientists to
participate in this workshop. Of course, advanced questions may also be
raised during the "Meet-the-Tutor-Professor" sessions (see Young
Investigator program for details). There is no age limit for participation
in the workshop and "Meet-the-Tutor-Professor" sessions.
This workshop will have different groups that will be formed, according
to knowledge, skills and exercises, before the workshop. This course also
aims at allowing "non-mathematics-folks" to understand the basic
principles of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.
Introductory couse for real beginners.
Pragmatic user of PK terms like clearance, t1/2 and AUC. Hardly any mathematical
requirements. Course level for persons who have been in touch with pharmacokinetics
/ pharmacodynamic and who would like to improve their skills.
Should (must not) publish in the area, knows all the typically applied
principles in PK / PD and microbiology. Is not expected to have highly
sophisticated skills in PK / PD analysis, like use of population models
or Monte Carlo Simulation.
(together with advanced)
As the lecturers of this course are leading world
experts on their fields, this course is also highly attractive for experts
in PK / PD. You will have the possibility to discuss your own problems
with the lecturers who will highly appreciate your questions before, during
and after the course hours. Please feel free to contact us, if we may
prepare a special problem for discussion. Just write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and in copy to email@example.com
There is a special offer "Week of Ehrlich Excellence" (see Conference Registration Form for further details) which includes all workshops.
