Indian Council of Medical Research(ICMR), Bombay College of Pharmacy, University of Mumbai and South Asian Chapter of American College of Clinical Pharmacology (SAC-ACCP) announces a 2 day “International Certificate Course in Pharmacokinetic Pharmacodynamic (PK PD)”
The main conference will be preceded by two parallel track pre-conference workshops:
Pre-Conference Workshop Track -1:
The purpose of this workshop is to present and discuss research and development related to anti-infective pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics (i.e., the relationship between pharmacokinetics and efficacy, toxicity or drug resistance). One of the objectives of pharmacodynamic studies is to accelerate drug development, mandatory due to the considerable cost of pharmaceutical research, preclinical microbiology and toxicology studies, and inevitable failures in the preliminary stages. After the initial microbiology studies, animal testing is an indispensable prerequisite for preselecting a compound for development. Pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic properties (PK/PD) establish correlations between in vitro tests and efficacy in experimental models of infection.
Pre-Conference Workshop Track -II:
Medical Writing workshop has been specifically designed to increase knowledge regarding scope and various aspects of medical writing and to impart essential skills of medical writing to students and young professionals through group activities and exercises. It is hoped that by the end of the workshop, the participants will be aware of the applications of medical writing to different fields in research. They will get familiarized with the nuances of writing an article and understanding the editor’s views. They will learn about safety reporting, writing SAE narrative and appreciate the scientific and ethical issues in publication including pharmaceutical advertisements.
Annual conferences have been held in Mumbai (India) with following themes :
The above conferences have been well received over the years as the Chapter could reach out to other regions. The following table gives an overview of attendance.
