Population PK/PD modeling in R
WCoP, April 6th Monday, 08:00-17:00
Location: Conference venue
IntiQuan is running a full day hands-on workshop on NLME modeling workflow from data exploration, parameter estimation, and reporting in the R environment using our IQR Tools R package. The major topics covered are:
- Data exploration with graphs and summary tables
- Defining structural model and parameter estimation settings (including IIV/BSV, covariance, and covariate models)
- NLME parameter estimation in NONMEM, MONOLIX, and NLMIXR
- Model evaluation based on goodness-of-fit plots and VPCs
- Model simulation
After the workshop, the participants will be able to set up their own NLME workflow using IQR Tools to: explore the modeling dataset, perform parameter estimation in supported NLME tools, and evaluate parameter estimation results. Furthermore, participants will be able to generate a short report in Microsoft Word.
The workshop is divided into two parts. In the first part, a basic PK modeling workflow will be introduced. The second part is a hands-on exercise in which the basic workflow will be applied to a PKPD model development. The participants will need to modify and extend the prepared R scripts under the supervision of the presenters. No prior knowledge of neither NONMEM, MONOLIX, nor NLMIXR is required. Basic knowledge of NLME modeling and R is of advantage. All material (slides, example models, R code, required R libraries, and additional software) will be shared with the participants prior to the workshop.
For participating in the hands-on part of the workshop, a laptop with an R installation is required. The parameter estimation can be performed either with NONMEM or MONOLIX, hence, either of these tools should be installed. A trial license for MONOLIX will be provided to participants who wish to use MONOLIX. Part of the examples can also be run with the open-source and freely available NLMIXR R package instead. Ideally, IQR Tools should be installed and parameter estimation software should be linked in the IQR Tools setup before the workshop. Participants will receive detailed and easy to follow installation instructions before the workshop and are encouraged to contact the presenters for support to setup IQR Tools on their system, if needed. Note that administrator rights are needed for some steps of the installation process (NONMEM and MONOLIX), so the complete installation during the workshop might not be possible.
