CREATES is a consortium of academic and research institutes whose overall objective is to conduct and promote cutting-edge innovative and relevant research in Therapeutic Sciences and medical genetics that address key health issues related to diseases of major public health importance in Kenya and the East African Region.
This online course is part of a set of training activities to support the development of pharmacometric competency and expertise in Africa and the developing world.
Pharmacometrics is a scientific and mathematical approach to drug development that uses Model-Based Drug Development (MBDD) to quantify the interactions between drugs and patients. By using pharmacometrics, researchers can model the characteristics of new drugs to simulate and predict their behaviour, which can then enable more efficient and optimal drug development. This course covers key aspects of clinical pharmacology and mathematical modelling that underpin the principles of pharmacometrics.
