Uppsala Pharmacometrics Summer School (UPSS)

The Uppsala Pharmacometrics Research Group is happy to invite PhD students from all around the world to the 6th annual Uppsala Pharmacometrics Summer School (UPSS).

Dates: August 8-19th, 2016.

Place: Uppsala, Sweden.

Intended for: PhD students.

Topics: The first week will focus on covariate model building, the second week on PKPD modeling of continuous and categorical data in NONMEM7.

Program: Lectures, hands-on sessions, student group work and student presentations.

Instructors: Mats O. Karlsson and colleagues

Prerequisites: 1) Previous experience with the NONMEM software.
2) Students will be asked to submit an abstract of an analysis problem they are currently working on or planning to start in the near future.
3) Students will also be required to present a poster based on the abstract.

Group work examples: During each course week, 2 days will be devoted to working with real data examples brought by the participants. This has been an appreciated component both by the students that have brought the examples and the other group members who get to expand their hands-on experience. For the purpose of these exercises, we ask applicants if they have examples with data that can be used and thus temporarily shared with fellow students in the group.

Fee: Free of charge (transport, accommodation and food not included).

Traveling grant: Novartis traveling grant covers traveling costs for up to five PhD students enrolled at universities in developing countries. The grant can be applied for on the same website as the summer school.

Maximum number of participants: 25.

Application opens: January 20th, 2016.

Application deadline: March 1st, 2016.
