This course focuses on PK/PD individual data analysis using PK compartmental models and PK/PD models. The intermediate PK/PD course will teach you how to set the models in Phoenix WinNonlin and how to interpret the results. The course will guide you through the process of selecting the best model and how to make predictions with the final model. Model selection is performed selecting library models, building the model graphically or coding the model in PML language.
Course topics include nonlinear modelling theory, fitting PK data, effect compartment PK/PD models, direct and indirect response PK/PD models, analyzing binary data, designing better studies and combining data among subjects. A high level overview of population methods is provided (Note that population methods are covered in detail in courses that use Phoenix NLME).
The concepts of each topic are explained in detail via instructional videos. Exercises are introduced and you are expected to practice concepts learned by performing the exercises on your own. Step by step solution videos are also provided to check your work. Your understanding of the concepts discussed is tested via short quizzes throughout the course.
