Prerequisites Before attending this course, attendees should have basic knowledge of PK/PD concepts Instructor Tom Jones has helped thousands of scientists become proficient with using Certara software in their research in the pharmaceutical industry. After completing his Ph.D. in analytical chemistry, he spent several years as an assistant professor, during which time he applied molecular modeling to teaching and research in chemistry, and then came to Certara, where for 18 years he has applied his passion for teaching scientific software applications. At first Tom was focused exclusively on molecular modeling applications in drug discovery and later broadened his expertise to include informatics and PK/PD modeling and analysis. He has created many training manuals, and you may very well have heard his voice in one of the numerous webinars and video demos he has created to help scientists become more proficient with Certara software.

Cost - $500 (Academia $250) Course Description The objective of this course is to train Phoenix WinNonlin users how to perform population PK using Phoenix NLME. Population PK/PD modeling is being used increasingly in regulatory submissions.  Population PK modeling can handle sparse data and also data combined from several studies.   The population approach estimates the variability between subjects in the PK parameters and can help you understand potential sources of PK variability. Through a series of practical exercises, learners will create population PK models, add covariates to models to help explain and quantify individual variation, and validate their models using bootstrap and VPC. Learners will become familiar with the theory necessary to make effective use of population modeling.
