Modelling and Simulation in Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics

This part-time distance learning course looks at the broad range of issues that make up modelling and simulation efforts during drug development. Our Modelling and Simulation in Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics MSc reinforces these via hands-on application of the skills to real-world data. The course is suitable if you are a scientist already working in the pharmaceutical industry who wishes to qualify as a modeller with hands-on experience. Course delivery is carried out online, but this is complemented by a three-week residential introductory package. There are also continuing professional development (CPD) short courses available to individuals working within the pharmaceutical industry, which are held in Manchester.
