Metrum Research Group's Cellar Office OPen-EDUcation in Pharmacometrics (“COOPED UP”) webinar series will be kicking off next month! These webinars will feature a range of topics, discussed in vignette formats, to share with our community the same training and development in which our staff routinely engages.
We will begin the "COOPED UP" series with "A Gentle Introduction to Optimal Design for Pharmacometric Models" on June 8, 2020 from noon - 1pm (EST).
PK/PD studies should be designed in such a way that the model parameters will be estimated with adequate precision and bias. This can be assessed by simulation, but depending on the study and model(s) involved, it can be impractical to evaluate many combinations of design variables. Optimal design tools allow us to quickly evaluate designs and even search over a design space for the best possible design.
In this first webinar, we will introduce basic concepts of optimal design, and then present examples of how to inform PK sampling time selection using the R packages PopED and mrgsolve.
Registration is required. Zoom meeting credentials will be sent via email prior to the webinar.
