OSPS Workshop @ ACoP 2018

esqLABS is running a one-day hands-on PK-Sim® & MoBi® workshop on integrating PBPK with QSP on Saturday October 6, 2018 at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort near San Diego, CA, United States.

PK-Sim® & MoBi® workshop on integrating PBPK with QSP

esqLABS is running a one-day hands-on PK-Sim® & MoBi® workshop on integrating PBPK with QSP on Saturday October 6, 2018 at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort near San Diego, CA, United States (For details on the workshop venue see ACoP9 registration site). The workshop covers the concepts and application of combining PK-Sim, MoBi and R to build your very own digital platforms for the prediction of clinical trial outcomes by leveraging physiological and mechanistic knowledge to translate early in-vitro and preclinical outcomes to the clinic. During hands-on exercises you will learn how to:

  • Build a PBPK model in PK-Sim and compare to observed data
  • Integrate mechanism-based pharmacodynamics in MoBi
  • Simulate and analyze your PBPK-QSP model in R

This workshop will be held by consultants & scientists from esqlabs GmbH with extensive experience in the use of PK-Sim® & MoBi® in all application areas.

While the workshop does not require any prior experience with PK-Sim® & MoBi®, many topics will be of interest even for advanced users.

Cost: 700 USD. We offer a reduced price of 350 USD for academics & non-profit organization employees to cover breakfast, lunch and coffee breaks.

REGISTRATION:

You will register via the ACoP9 registration site. For more information on the workshop, please email Stephan on workshop@esqLABS.com.

NOTICE: due to popular demand, registration for ACoP9 is FULL. Registration for ACoP9 is closed!!

TO REGISTER FOR THE WORKSHOP, PLEASE WRITE AN EMAIL TO: connect@go-isop.org !

The workshop is currently restricted to 40 participants.
