Model-Based Drug Development 101, a new Xtalks webinar

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) February 06, 2013

As the development of new drugs is becomes increasingly expensive and lengthy process, it’s clear that new approaches must be explored.

With model-based drug development (MBDD), mathematical models can be used early on to test extremely complex situations before deciding on a course of action. These models can identify the right dose, the right population, optimize clinical protocol, program, and portfolio designs, and compare candidates with existing drugs — ultimately providing better decisions and optimized returns.

Expert speakers will provide an overview of the basics of model based drug development and its practical applications — from electing the right dose and population to optimizing trial, program, and portfolio design.

Attendees will get a sense of how model- based drug development can help to:

  •     Improve communication across disciplines
  •     Utilize the many data domains to improve drug development
  •     Make better, quantitative, data-driven decisions

A live Q&A with the audience will follow the main presentation.
