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.

Aims of the Program

PharMetrX aims: to comprehensively train junior scientists in pharmacometrics & computational disease modelling; to convey knowledge, method and software expertise, and decision-making competence in both fields; to formally implement pharmacometrics in the academic environment; and to promote pharmacometrics & computational disease modelling, and bridge the gap between academia and industry.


What is pharmacometrics?

How to find on 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 intergrative science using in silico models to understand the drug-patient-disease relationships and to optimise drug therapy.


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 PhD program and the PharMetrX training & network program. The first comprises an excellent research environment in the vibrant Berlin/Potsdam area, fascinating research projects in a highly relevant field, truely transdisciplinary supervision, a competitive fellowship. Both programs offer a tailored training curriculum and a network of peers. Interested?



PharMetrX is led by two chairs: Charlotte Kloft, Professor at Freie Universität Berlin, and Wilhelm Huisinga, Professor at the Universität Potsdam, who constitute the Steering Board being supported by the PharMetrX Coordinator. The Steering Board together with two representatives of the Industry Partners form the Extended Steering Board.


People and partners

PharMetrX has established itself as an internationally recognised graduate research training program with the support and enthusiasm of many dedicated people and partners. These contribute in various ways to the three components Research, Training & Network as members of PharMetrX's Research Collaboration Partners, Faculty Network or the consortium of research-driven Industry Partners.
