Translational-Oriented Quantitative Therapeutic Approaches:
A Concerted Effort

The Faculté de pharmacie of the Université de Montréal, in collaboration with CRM, PhysNum,
and CAMBAM is organizing a workshop from June 12th to 14th at Jean-Coutu Pavilion

The aim is to provide a dedicated place to discuss the most recent advances in quantitative
approaches in pharmacometrics.  A special emphasis will be placed on the translational effort of
these approaches to increase the predictability of drug-related therapeutic outcomes and facilitate clinical transferability. Several leading topics, such as quantitative systems pharmacology,
cutting-edge PK/PD modeling, mobile Health and mobile Therapeutics will be covered

A Hands-on tutorial with SimBiology will be given on the second-half of the third day
of the workshop.
