esqLABS is running a one-day hands-on PK-Sim® & MoBi® workshop on integrating PBPK with QSP for in-silico first-in-man PD predictions on Monday 28 May at the Hotel Royal Plaza in Montreux, Switzerland as a Satellite meeting to PAGE 2018. The workshop covers the 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 PBPK model in PK-Sim and compare to observed data
- Integrate mechanism-based pharmacodynamics in MoBi
- Simulate and analyze your PBPK-QSP model in R
This workshop will be held jointly by consultants & scientists from esqlabs GmbH and Bayer AG 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.
Cost: 300 EUR. Academics & non-profit organization employees 180 EUR to cover the room, lunch and coffee breaks.
For more information and registration, please email Stephan on workshop@esqLABS.com.
The workshop is currently restricted to 20 participants.
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:
