Short Courses

The BMSR Short Courses serve to train the broader biomedical research community in the modeling and simulation methodologies developed by Resource Scientists and others.

2017 BMSR Short Course
Modeling Biologics using ADAPT
David Z. D’Argenio, Ph.D. (Co-Organizer)
Niagara Falls, New York
May 13-14, 2017

Meeting Information/Registration

The BMSR is co‐sponsoring this meeting as part of our Training initiative. The “Modeling Biologics using ADAPT” course is organized in collaboration with the University at Buffalo Center for Protein Therapeutics directed by Prof. Balthasar. It is one of several courses associated with the Workshop series on PK/PD Modeling organized by Prof. Jusko at the Univ. at Buffalo.

The workshop will include background lectures on mathematical, statistical, and computational aspects of pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic modeling, with an emphasis on the principles and applications of simulation and estimation methods. Case studies will focus on modeling the PK/PD of biologics that exhibit target mediated drug disposition, PBPK modeling of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), modeling PK/PD of anti‐body drug conjugates and modeling bispecific mAbs.

The course instructors are:

  • David Z. D’Argenio, PhD, Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Southern California and Chonette Chair of Biomedical Technology
  • Joseph P. Balthasar, PhD, Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York
  • Donald E. Mager, PharmD, PhD, Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York
  • Dhaval K. Shah, PhD, Assistant Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York
