Two satellite workshops for the APC 2017 in Kyoto, Japan


  1. Understanding Classical Estimation Methods of NONMEM® (Wed. 25th Oct)

It is hard to understand the background theory of NONMEM. Lectures and examples will be given to understand the internals of NONMEM. Participants are expected to have basic knowledge of R software (such as package installation) but not of NONMEM. They will produce essentially the same output as in NONMEM with R optimization functions only, without any help of NONMEM. For more details and registration, please visit http://pmx.amc.seoul.kr

  1. Translation of mAb PKPD: Theoretical basis and Case Studies (Wed. 25th Oct)

PIPET (Pharmacometrics Institute for Practical Education and Training) of the Catholic University of Korea will give a full day workshop in Kyoto. This is not a typical hands-on modeling workshop, but a course for comprehensive understanding of the PKPD of monoclonal antibodies and its practical application cases in clinical development. The course provides chances to look into the theoretical background in physiology and resulting mathematical models as well as interesting cases of translation in human.
