Uppsala Pharmacometrics Group is happy to
announce a NONMEM Workshop on Diagnostics,
Model Building and New Estimation Methods
tailed for intermediate and advanced NONMEM
users, to be held in September 27-29, 2010.
The course is part of a series of NONMEM
Workshops scheduled for two years in Seoul,
and will present modeling strategies, techniques
and implementations (using NONMEM 7) for
the handling of PK and PD information in
population models. The next Workshop (to
be held) in 2011 will cover Pharmacokinetic-Pharmacodynamic
(PK-PD) Modeling of Continuous, Categorical
and Time-to Event data.
New for this
offering of the course:
The course will include explanations and
comparisons of the different estimation
methods available in NONMEM 7. Model diagnostics
using these new estimation methods will
also be covered.
The course will consist of both lectures
and hands-on computer exercises using NONMEM
7, PsN and Xpose 4. Self-instructive material
is provided for further studies and exploration
of examples within the field. The participants
will be provided with a NONMEM library of
example code for a wide range of methods

The Uppsala group has been involved in developing
NONMEM models and methodology for over fifteen
years. In parallel, informative diagnostics
for model building and model evaluation
have been developed, evaluated and integrated
into the user-friendly software Perl-speaks-NONMEM
(PsN) and Xpose
Experience with performing NONMEM analyses.
