Course information

The Uppsala Pharmacometrics Research Group is happy to invite PhD students (and recent graduates) from all around the world to the 10th Uppsala Pharmacometrics Summer School (UPSS).

Dates: August 15th-26th, 2022
Place: Uppsala, Sweden

Intended for: PhD students and recent graduates (since August 2020).

Topics: The first week will focus on covariate model building, the second week on PKPD modelling of continuous and categorical data in NONMEM 7.

Program: Lectures, hands-on sessions, student group work, and student presentations.

Instructors: Mats O. Karlsson and colleagues.

Prerequisites:
1) Previous experience with the NONMEM software.
2) Students will be asked to submit an abstract of an analysis problem they are currently working on or planning to start in the near future.
3) Students will also be required to present a poster based on this abstract.

Group work examples: During each course week, two days will be devoted to working with real data examples brought by the participants. This has been an appreciated component both by the students that have brought the examples and the other group members who get to expand their hands-on experience. For the purpose of these exercises, we ask applicants if they have examples with data that can be used and thus temporarily shared with fellow students in the group.

Fee: Free of charge (transport, accommodation, and food are not included).

Traveling grant: Pharmacometrics Africa has provided traveling grants that can be applied for by students for African universities. Novartis traveling grant covers travelling costs for up to five PhD students enrolled at universities in developing countries. You can apply for these grants in this application form.

Maximum number of participants: 30

Application deadline: March 15th, 2022

Contact: anders.thorsted@farmaci.uu.se and simon.carter@farmaci.uu.se (please include both Email addresses in any correspondence).

Extra: A block of rooms at a suitably located hostel (http://www.vandrarhemuppsala.se/en/) will be reserved for course participants, and a social program will be proposed.

Covid-19: The covid-19 pandemic will invariably change by August 2022, and course participants are advised to check and comply with Swedish regulations when arranging their travels. The course will not be run as an online course in the event of cancellation.
