ISoP New England Leadership Call for Nominations/Volunteers

In 2019, the New England group of the International Society of Pharmacometrics (ISoPNE) held several technical meetings from hosting Peter Bonate’s highly regarded communications seminar to a full-day workshop on integrated Pharmacometrics and Systems Pharmacology (jointly with the QSP SIG). In addition, we started a monthly happy hour that provides a casual place to network. We are recognized as a very active and successful local group and are a model that other regions are following.

Beginning in February 2020, Andy Zhu will assume the role of Chair. To fill the Chair-elect position, we are seeking energetic, engaged members of the local pharmacometrics community to help lead the ISoPNE going forward. The new Chair-elect will join the ISoPNE leadership at the end of February 2020 and will become Chair in February 2021.
