Key Learning Objectives

  • Familiarise yourself with the key principles of Pharmacokinetics, including absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion.
  • Understand how to present Pharmacokinetic results to the regulators.
  • Consolidate your knowledge with case studies and understand the relevance of Pharmacokinetics in practice
  • Address the fundamental areas of PK, including definitions, data analysis  and regulatory expectations.

About the Course

Pharmacokinetics is an important discipline, imperative to the development of new medicines. With no prior knowledge assumed, this six-module course will familiarise you with the core aspects of pharmacokinetics. You will learn important definitions, how to analyse pharmacokinetic data, the relationship between pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, drug-drug interactions and regulatory requirements. On top of this, you will be able to consolidate your knowledge with two case studies, both detailing practical uses of pharmacokinetics.

Who Will Benefit

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.

Relevant Departments include:

  • Research & Development
  • Preclinical Development
  • Licensing & Business Development
  • Clinical Operations
  • Regulatory Affairs
  • Clinical Pharmacology
