Population Analysis Introductory Workshop

  March 01, 2008  
Resource Facility for Population Kinetics, University of Washington, Seattle, WA
March 24-25, 2008

The Resource Facility for Population Kinetics (RFPK) is pleased to offer an Introductory Workshop on Population Analysis using the System for Population Kinetics in Seattle, WA, USA, on March 24-25, 2008.

The two-day workshop will feature: Model development, testing and identifiability; hands-on introduction to differential equation and numerical modeling; individual and population models, population distributions; approaches to population analysis based on likelihood approximations. The understanding, practical usage and implementation of modeling concepts described in the workshop will be reinforced through hands-on use of published data sets.

The System for Population Kinetics (SPK) will be used for workshop training. The SPK is a web-based service for modeling and simulation being developed by the RFPK at the University of Washington. SPK facilitates nonlinear least squares and mixed effects modeling via a web browser and Java interface and uses a NONMEM-compatible language for model specification. The service is freely available and individual accounts will be provided to workshop participants (pursuant to the SPK Terms of Service). The SPK is accessible through the RFPK website located at http://www.rfpk.washington.edu.


Organized by: University of Washington
Invited Speakers:
