Advanced QSP Modeling – From Clinical Data to Virtual Subjects, Cohorts, and Populations
April 21st 2020
On Tuesday, April 21, 2020, IntiQuan welcomes you to a full day hands-on workshop on advanced QSP modeling!
Quantitative systems pharmacology model development using gQSPSim: a GUI-based open-source platform for SimBiology models
April 22nd 2020
gQSPSim is a comprehensive GUI-based MATLAB app developed by Genentech to perform key processes in QSP model development and analyses (Fig. 1):
gQSPSim works with any SimBiology model and provides an interactive interface for all features, and the ability to generate presentation-ready figures, and save and share working sessions for future use.
In this half-day workshop, we will introduce the gQSPSim framework, building blocks and functionalities. The application and features of gQSPSim are demonstrated using 1) a standard target-mediated drug disposition (TMDD) model, and 2) a published PCSK9 QSP model (Gadkar et al. 2014). Workshop attendees will be instructed on how to use the app to perform the QSP model development key processes listed above. We will explore the use of acceptance criteria to generate virtual cohorts under different scenarios and use visual diagnostic tools to compare virtual patients with the pre-specified range of measurements. Lastly, we will use statistical data to generate a virtual population from a virtual cohort.

Two PK-Sim® & MoBi® Workshops on PBPK and PBPK-based QSP
April 21st and April 25th 2020
esqLABS is running two hands-on PK-Sim® & MoBi® workshops on PBPK and PBPK-based QSP on Tuesday and Saturday 21st and 25th of April 2020 as (pre & post) satellite meetings to the QSPC 2020 Meeting in Leiden, Netherlands.
Learn to create your very own PBPK and PB-QSP platforms by combining PK-Sim, MoBi, and R. The workshop will commence with a brief introduction to the basic concepts of PBPK. We will quickly switch to hands-on exercises in which we will cover use-cases for DDI, pediatric analyses and PBPK/PD for biologics.
The two workshops will be held by consultants and scientists from esqlabs GmbH who have extensive experience in the use of PK-Sim® & MoBi® in all application areas.
While the workshop does not require any prior experience with PK-Sim® & MoBi®, many topics will be of interest even for advanced users.

QSP and mechanistic PK/PD modeling workshop
Lixoft is running a 1 day hands-on workshop on quantitative systems pharmacology (QSP) and mechanistic PK/PD modeling with the MonolixSuite on Tuesday the 21st of April.
The MonolixSuite offers an integrated and powerful framework to implement, fit, diagnose and simulate QSP and mechanistic PK/PD models. The workshop will alternate lectures and hands-on sessions. After an introduction to the goals and advantages of QSP models, the setup of QSP models in Monolix will be explained and exemplified using a representative data set. In the afternoon, participants will have the opportunity to practice the implementation of a QSP model and the estimation of its parameters from clinical data. The calibrated model will finally be used to answer precise research questions via simulations. No prior experience of the MonolixSuite is required. Temporary licenses for the MonolixSuite will be provided.
