Graduate Research Training Program:
Pharmacometrics & Computational Disease Modelling

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?
