The 3-Day Introductory Workshop in Population PK Data Analysis with NONMEM®
September 11, 2017 - September 13, 2017
This three-day workshop has been designed to provide the necessary information to successfully implement population pharmacokinetic methodology in a drug development program and to provide the foundation for understanding the basics of NONMEM coding and interpretation of NONMEM output. The material is structured to impart both the theoretical and practical aspects of the population approach and is versatile so that participants with diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise may benefit. Examples of the use of population PK studies in drug development programs will be presented to provide specific details of various implementations and better illustrate essential aspects of population PK methods. Emphasis will be placed on compliance with the FDA’s Guidance for Industry on Population PK and the EMA’s Guideline on Reporting the Results of Population PK Analyses; participants will gain an appreciation for the importance of accurate and sufficient data collection and learn how to proactively plan in order to maximize study effectiveness. To ease the learning curve and ensure that participants are up and running with NONMEM very quickly, the KIWI™ Pharmacometric Communication Platform will be used in conjunction with NONMEM. KIWI is useful in facilitating code writing, finding errors, comparing output from different models, and generating point-and-click diagnostics.
