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?
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?
The »Graduate Research Training Program PharMetrX: Pharmacometrics & Computational Disease Modelling« is a joint initiative in Germany between the 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.more
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.more
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.more
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.more
