We are writing to invite you to the Industry Problem Solving Workshop Systems Modelling in the Pharmaceutical Industry hosted by the Centre for Quantitative Analysis and Modelling and the Fields Institute (http://www.fields.utoronto.ca/activities/20-21/systems-modelling). Due to the ongoing pandemic, this year’s edition of the workshop will be held as a 3 hour webinar on July 16 from 12:00-15:00 EDT. The virtual event will include presentations by industrial experts in pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics (PK/PD) and quantitative systems pharmacology (QSP) modelling, followed by a panel on modelling careers in industry.
The aim of the original one-week long workshop was to equip graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in mathematics and related disciplines with the tools necessary to solve common problems encountered in the pharmaceutical industry. Our focus was on the development of pharmacometric skills to approach questions centered on drug development and dose/therapy optimization using a variety of state-of-the-art QSP methodologies, also known as systems modelling. This year’s virtual workshop is a shortened version addressing these same subjects, and is an opportunity to ask everything and anything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask about QSP, PK/PD, population PK (PopPK), virtual populations (VPop), and opportunities in industry.
