Grow your knowledge and confidence in pharmacokinetics to fully understand the data and decisions made

Course Overview

Pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) play a key role in drug development, and a good understanding of the implications of PK/PD data is crucial when designing clinical trials or preparing a drug submission dossier. As a professional working with PK/PD data on a regular basis, you must have a solid understanding of the topic to communicate effectively with the development teams - a daunting and challenging task, due to the breadth and complexity of the topic area.

This course assumes no prior PK knowledge and aims to give you a broad understanding of this fascinating subject, using multiple case studies and relevant examples. You will learn what pharmacokinetics involves, what data is collected, and its impact on the drug development process. By learning these skills you will be able to understand, communicate, and challenge the data presented to you.

Live Online Academies

What will you learn?

Pharmacokinetics Fundamentals

Gain a comprehensive introduction to PK and its role in drug development, including its application to the go/no-go decision

Pharmacokinetics Analysis

Examine the reasons behind PK analysis and the vital data it produces, including absorption, distribution, metabolism and elimination

Regulatory Requirements

Explore PK/PD from the view of the Regulators, both EMA and FDA

Preclinical and Clinical Analysis

Examine the essential differences between preclinical and clinical PK analysis

Pharmacokinetics issues

Explore PK issues arising from biologics

Who is this course for?

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. The course is designed to give an overview of the field without the equations. It will be of particular benefit to professionals working in:

• Development
• Preclinical
• Phase I
• Licensing and business development
• Clinical Operations
• Regulatory Affairs
• Data Management
• Drug Safety
• Clinical Pharmacology
• Registration

CPD Certified

Engaging in Continuing Professional Development ensures that both academic and practical qualifications do not become out-dated or obsolete; allowing individuals to continually ‘up skill’ or ‘re-skill’ themselves, regardless of occupation, age or educational level. This course has been assessed and is CPD certified.
