Overview

This course will provide an overview of biological systems exhibiting delays, concepts of lifespan driven pharmacodynamic response, modeling of cell maturation, and nonlinear mixed effect lifespan models. Delay differential equations (DDEs) will be introduced and implemented in NONMEM pre-release version 7.5. The course will consist of both lectures and hands-on computer exercises. Source codes for DDE based PK/PD models and data will be provided to the participants.

This course, the Beginners/Intermediate course, and the Advanced Course are part of one series. Interested parties may register for the first two days, the third day, the fourth day or any combination of the three courses.
