Graduate Research Training Program:
Pharmacometrics & Computational Disease Modelling

PharMetrX mourns the passing of Hartmut Derendorf

Still shocked, we have to realise the unexpected loss of Hartmut Derendorf, distinguished professor at the University of Florida and pioneer in the field in modern clinical pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. He was an enthusiastic PharMetrX faculty member and strong promotor of our program. Hartmut, we will always remember you and keep your spirit alive! MORE

What is pharmacometrics?

How to find the right drug and the right dosing regimen for a patient? How to make use of the wealth of information available - about the drug, the patho-/physiology, in vitro, nonclinical and clinical data? Pharmacometrics is the integrative science using in silico models to understand the drug-patient-disease relationships and to optimise drug therapy for better outcomes. Eager to learn more?


Am I right here?

Are you about to finish or have you just finished your studies in pharmacy, pharmaceutical sciences, mathematics, bioinformatics, or some related field? Are you looking for a PhD in a fascinating research area at the intersection of clinical pharmacy and applied mathematics? Or are you a 1st year PhD student and looking for top-class training modules and a network of peers? Then you are right here!


What does PharMetrX offer?

We offer two programs: the PharMetrX Research+ Program and the PharMetrX Training+ Program. The first comprises an excellent research environment in the vibrant Berlin/Potsdam area, fascinating research projects in a highly relevant field, truly transdisciplinary supervision, and a competitive fellowship. Both programs offer a tailored training curriculum plus a network of peers. Interested?

About us

The »Graduate Research Training Program PharMetrX: Pharmacometrics & Computational Disease Modelling« is a joint initiative in Germany between Freie Universität Berlin and the Universität Potsdam, bridging Pharmacy and Mathematics, and supported by a consortium of the research-driven pharmaceutical companies. PharMetrX is chaired by Charlotte Kloft, Professor of Clinical Pharmacy & Biochemistry, and Wilhelm Huisinga, Professor of Mathematical modelling and Systems biology.



Students join PharMetrX either as part of the PharMetrX Research+ Program or the PharMetrX Training+ Program. Every year between July and Mid September, we call for applications to join PharMetrX the following March.



PhD students of the PharMetrX Research+ Program contribute with their projects to the PharMetrX research platform; they are part of the joint PharMetrX research group bridging both universities and disciplines; co-/supervised by the two program chairs, have a mentor from industry and are financed by a competitive research fellowship.


Training & Network

The PharMetrX Training Curriculum and Network constitute two key components of the PharMetrX program. These are part of both, the PharMetrX Research+ Program as well as the PharMetrX Training+ Program.



Interested in applying to the PharMetrX Research+ Program or the PharMetrX Training+ Program? Here, you will find all the necessary information to proceed.
