University of Manchester
Modelling and Simulation in Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics
The programme has been developed with an emphasis on mechanistic approaches to assessing and predicting PKPD; such as Physiologically-Based Pharmacokinetics (PBPK); we view this under the general umbrella of systems biology and hence enable students to apply their knowledge of modelling and simulation in various areas of research within the pharmaceutical industry; the course focuses on the broad range of issues that make up M&S efforts during drug development and these are reinforced via hands-on application of the skills to real-world data; this programme is designed for scientists already working within the pharmaceutical industry who wish to qualify as modellers with hands-on experience and obtain a university degree; the flexible, distance learning nature of the course means that students can fit their study around their other commitments; the only required time on-site is during the three-week residential introductory package and for the examination.
Applicants should have a Bachelors degree with a minimum classification of 2nd Class Honours, Upper division (2.1) or its international equivalent; admission of candidates who do not meet this criterion may be approved if satisfactory evidence of postgraduate study, research or professional experience can be provided; applicants whose 1st language is not English should meet the following language requirements: IELTS Test score of 6.5 or more overall; with a minimum writing score of 6 and 6 in the other subsections or TOEFL Test (Internet based) score of 88 or more overall.
