ACoP 10 mAb PBPK/PD Workshop

PK-Sim® & MoBi® (OSP Suite) workshop on PBPK/PD of ADCs for Tumor Treatment

esqLABS is running a one-day hands-on PK-Sim® & MoBi® workshop on PBPK/PD (PB-QSP) of antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) for the treatment of tumor growth on Saturday 19th of October at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando, FL, US as a satellite meeting to ACoP 10 2019. The workshop covers concepts and application of combining PK-Sim, MoBi and R to build your very own digital platforms for the prediction of clinical trial outcomes by leveraging physiological and mechanistic knowledge to translate early in-vitro and preclinical outcomes to the clinic. During hands-on exercises you will learn how to:

  • Build a antibody/protein PBPK model in PK-Sim and compare to observed data
  • Extend the physiology of your PBPK model in MoBi
  • Integrate mechanism-based pharmacodynamics in MoBi
  • Conduct parameter identifications in PK-Sim and MoBi
  • Simulate and analyze your PBPK-QSP model in R

This workshop will be held by consultants & scientists from esqlabs GmbH with extensive experience in the use of PK-Sim® & MoBi® in all application areas.

While the workshop does not require any prior experience with PK-Sim® & MoBi®, many topics will be of interest even for advanced users.


To register for the workshop, please do so via your Registration for ACoP 10 on

The workshop is currently restricted to 40 participants.

Registration includes coffee- and lunch breaks.


As a use-case for above learnings, we will develop a PB-QSP model for naked antibody pre-treatment (nAb) for antibody-drug conjugates (ADC) treatment of tumor growth, in detail:
