Pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) play a key role in drug development, and a good understanding of the implications of PK/PD data is crucial when designing clinical trials or preparing a drug submission dossier.
This course assumes no prior PK knowledge, and aims to give a broad understanding of this fascinating subject, using multiple case studies and relevant examples.
Over two days, you will learn what pharmacokinetics involves, what data is collected and how and its impact on the drug development process.
Dr. Stefano Persiani is currently Director of Translational Sciences and Pharmacokinetics at Rottapharm Biotech, Italy. After years working in academia, Dr. Persiani moved to the pharmaceutical industry and CRO sector holding different positions in R&D at Farmitalia Carlo Erba, Pharmacia, Upjon, and Zambon Group.
His experience within pharmaceutical companies and CROs ranges from drug discovery and lead optimization to early preclinical and full clinical development in different therapeutic areas including oncology, respiratory, CNS, anti-infective, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, and rheumatology.
This course is aimed at anyone who comes into contact with PK/PD data but does not require specialist knowledge in the field. No previous knowledge of PK/ PD is assumed. The course is designed to give an overview of the field without the equations. It will be of particular benefit to professionals working in:
• Phase I
• Clinical Operations
• Regulatory Affairs
• Data Management
• Drug Safety
• Clinical Pharmacology
