Pharmacometrics, particularly regarding the design, analysis, interpretation and application of pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic studies.


PAWS Themes:

Learning Population Analysis and NONMEM from the beginning.
Coding of Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Models using NONMEM


Who should attend?

The PAWS and PAGANZ meeting is the Australasian forum for scientists with a research and professional interest in the use of the population approach in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. A strong focus of this meeting is the application of population modelling and simulation techniques in the experimental, clinical and regulatory settings of drug development.


This meeting is designed for scientists and clinicians working in basic or clinical pharmacology research, pharmaceutical industry, regulatory bodies and postgraduate students. The meeting combines a hands on workshop lead by leaders in the field and a one day scientific meeting giving researchers the opportunity to present and discuss their own work. This is a very informal meeting and in the past has been very productive in helping and guiding researchers in this important area of pharmacology and drug development.




PAWS Monday 7th and Tuesday 8th February 2005

PAGANZ Tuesday 8th  and Wednesday 9th February 2005


Poster or Oral Communication Abstract Submission

As part of the PAGANZ scientific meeting researchers will have an opportunity to display research poster and also present a 5 minute overview of their research with a chance for discussion by attending scientists. This has been an informal and most valuable aspect of previous meetings.

Deadline for Abstract Submission: 28th January 2005

Abstract Format: Presenters should submit a 1 A4 page summary of their research with a Title, all authors and affiliations.

Abstracts should be emailed as a Word document attachment to:

PAWS Workshop

The course will consist of lectures and hands-on exercises at a computer. During the hands-on exercises, tutors will be available for consultation and assistance.

The Beginners Course and the Intermediate Course will be conducted as parallel sessions. Attendance at the Intermediate Course requires experience with the conduct of at least one population approach analysis.


PAGANZ Scientific Meeting

The PAGANZ meeting will include a symposium highlighting recent advances in the application of the population approach to pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics in different clinical settings and in drug development. The symposium speakers will include international and local experts in the field and presents a unique opportunity for Australasian scientists to see the best in action. Two sessions will be dedicated to free communications and discussions providing a forum for researchers to present their work and receive feedback and advice from their peers in an informal setting.
