Welcome to the discuss.go-isop.org community! Discuss.go-isop.org is a free, modern discussion forum designed for any individuals interested in sharing ideas related to all aspects of the discipline of pharmacometrics. Discussions include applications of pharmacometrics to quantitative drug development, sharing of instructional/tutorial materials, questions related to commonly used tools, sharing of coding examples, meeting and workshop announcements, and more. Population pharmacokinetics (pop PK), pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics (PKPD), Quantitative Systems Pharmacolog (QSP)y, Physiologic based Pharmacokinetics (PBPK) and other topics are covered here. The site is hosted by the International Society of Pharmacometrics (www.go-isop.org), but anyone from any discipline with an interest in pharmacometrics is welcome to join.
Based on the discourse.org software, discuss.go-isop.org is a 100% open source discussion platform built for the next decade of the Internet. It supports video and url links within topics, file uploads (with file extensions unique to our discipline), equations, and wikis, all of which may be useful to our community. Users can login (top right) and create a unique login, or choose to use one of their existing logins such as Google,Facebook, Yahoo, and even Github (for all the programmers in our community). Like other modern social media, users only receive emails for the topics that they have started, those they have replied to, those they bookmark, or those where they have been specifically named. Topics appear in the order of activity, but are easily searched using the search icon, or by going to each specific category of interest.
Our new community is based on trust and respect. Please treat this discussion forum with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation. As members become trusted regulars over time, they earn increasing abilities to help maintain their community (multiple topics, adding links, etc). Our trust system means that the community builds a natural immune system to defend itself from trolls, bad actors, and spammers — and the most engaged community members can assist in the governance of their community. We put a trash can on every street corner with a simple, low-friction flagging system. Positive behaviors are encouraged through likes and badges (we hope you find the badge names both familiar and amusing) . We gently, constantly educate members in a just-in-time manner on the universal rules of civilized discourse.
We hope you enjoy and become a frequent contributor to this forum!
