This is a 3-credit Course
Introduction to Physiologically-Based Modeling is a 3-credit course that provides students and trainees with the theoretical concepts as well as hands-on applications in physiologically-based modeling and its use in drug development and regulatory evaluation with focus on physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modeling. Upon completion of this course, students will have gained a basic understanding of PBPK model components and parameters, key PBPK model building and verification steps, and the data needed to inform these models. They will also have completed hands-on training in different PBPK software platforms.
Upon completion of this course, student will be able to:
- Understand the role of physiologically-based models at different stages of drug development and regulatory evaluation with focus on physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) models.
- Identify key PBPK model components and parameters
- Understand and apply PBPK model building and verification processes
- Identify the data needed to inform PBPK models
- Parametrize clearance, volume of distribution, and absorption processes using different in vitro and in vivo
- Identify factors impacting clearance, volume of distribution, and oral drug absorption
- Understand the role of transporters and parametrize them in PBPK models
- Develop and verify models for major PBPK applications (i.e., absorption, drug-drug interactions, and special patients populations) in different software platforms
- Have a basic understanding of additional major PBPK applications (e.g., virtual bioequivalence and non- oral routes of absorption)
- Understand the setup of PBPK models for large molecules and how they differ from small molecules
