Understanding PK/PD is becoming increasingly important throughout our industry. While some have embraced it as a vital tool to reduce risk, big challenges lie ahead before its value is fully realized.

With industry productivity slumping over the past decade and the financial stakes of R&D higher than ever, it is crucial that drug candidates enter the clinic with as little risk as possible.

Model-based development can help you decide what molecules to kill early, and what candidates should be accelerated from the laboratory bench into the clinic. Implemented correctly, it can also arm you with the tools needed to reduce the number of dosing arms in studies, achieve better characterization of exposure-response, and help you to reach key decisions that provide the basis of a successful filing.

Learn, network and discuss: We've worked with industry peers including Pfizer, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Biogen Idec, Novo Nordisk, Lilly, Novartis, Boehringer Ingelheim, Abbott and the FDA to tackle the issues that matter to you.
