Cost - $500 (Academia $250, India $125) 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.
