3rd European Training Course on Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Protein Therapeutics – Principles and Pharmacometric Approaches

Dear Colleagues,
We are happy to announce the 3rd European Training Course on Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Protein Therapeutics – Principles and Pharmacometric Approaches that will be held in Lyon, France on November 28-30, 2018.

The 3-day course is a shortened version of the course which has been given for the last eight years  by Prof Bernd Meibohm & Johan Gabrielsson in the United States, and it is organized in Europe for the third time under the aegis of AP2POP association.

During this course, you will be introduced to basic principles in the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic evaluation of novel therapeutic proteins and hands-on exercises in the PK/PD evaluation of these compounds. Topics include target-mediated drug disposition, tissue and tumor penetration, first-in-human dose selection, immunogenicity, clinical pharmacology challenges, biosimilars, and drug-drug interactions. The target audience comprises pharmaceutical scientists from industry, academia and regulatory agencies with basic knowledge in PK and PKPD that would like to receive a comprehensive overview or refresher on the PK and PKPD of this class of compounds. Hands-on exercises will be performed individually and in small groups using simple software tools (no prior experience required).

Attendance and registration:

The attendance will be strictly limited to 35 participants, allowing nice interactions. As well, a limited number of spots have been reserved for academia and trainees for one third of the price.
