Happy Spring! (for those of us that are North of the Equator) Simulations Plus continues to thrive and grow with dozens of events planned for 2023 One of our most popular workshops is fast approaching and there are only a few seats remaining. The PBPK modeling FIH, first-in-human workshop is your opportunity to focus on real-world scenarios and gain expertise to apply to your projects. This workshop is scheduled for select dates between April 24th and May 26th. Register now!

  • Mark your calendars to attend a very exciting workshop on Physiologically Based Biopharmaceutics Modeling (PBBM) Best Practices for Drug Product Quality: Regulatory and Industry Perspectives: Universities at Shady Grove (Rockville, MD)  Aug. 29th – 31st

The purpose of this workshop is to discuss and establish the best scientific practices for developing the PBBM models for orally administered, systemically active drug products and how these models can be leveraged for streamlining pharmaceutical drug product development and supporting manufacturing changes and controls.The workshop is sponsored by the University of Maryland Center for Excellence in Regulatory science and innovation (M-CERSI) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Physiologically Based Biopharmaceutics Modeling (PBBM) Best Practices for Drug Product Quality: Regulatory and Industry Perspectives (umaryland.edu) Additionally, Simulations Plus is making appearances at several live conferences in the month of April: Conferences

Are you heading to San Diego for CHI’s Drug Discovery Chemistry? Be sure to meet Eric Jamois in booth #503 to discuss how ADMET Predictor® and our early drug discovery services can work for you.
