PBPK Workshop @ ACoP 10, 2019

esqLABS is running a one-day hands-on PK-Sim® & MoBi® workshop on basic concepts in PBPK on Thursday 24h of October in Orlando, US as a satellite meeting to ACoP 10.

PK-Sim® & MoBi® (OSP Suite) workshop on PBPK

esqLABS is running a one-day hands-on PK-Sim® & MoBi® workshop on basic concepts in PBPK on Thursday 24th of October in Orlando, US as a satellite meeting to ACoP 10. The workshop covers age-dependent PK, population simulations and drug-drug-interactions (DDI) in PBPK modeling using PK-Sim for DMPK, pediatric and geriatric investigations by leveraging physiological and mechanistic knowledge for translational modeling in your drug R&D program. During hands-on exercises you will learn how to:

  • Build a PBPK model in PK-Sim and compare to observed data
  • Learn how to consider age-dependency in drug PK in PK-Sim (Pediatrics and Geriatrics)
  • Conduct population simulations in PK-Sim and MoBi
  • Learn how to model drug-drug interactions in PK-Sim (DDI)

and, if time permits:

  • Conduct parameter identifications in PK-Sim and MoBi
  • Simulate your PBPK 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.

REGISTRATION

To register for the workshop, please visit EventBrite.

The workshop is currently restricted to 25 participants.

Registration includes coffee- and lunch breaks.

AGENDA

As a use-case for above learnings, we will develop PBPK models for different small molecule drugs as use-cases for modeling drug-drug interactions and the concepts of age-related PK, in detail:
