Pharmacometrics is the science of interpreting and describing pharmacology in a quantitative fashion. The pharmaceutical industry is integrating pharmacometrics into its drug development program, but there is a lack of and need for experienced pharmacometricians since fewer and fewer academic programs exist to train them. Pharmacometrics: The Science of Quantitative Pharmacology lays out the science of pharmacometrics and its application to drug development, evaluation, and patient pharmacotherapy, providing a comprehensive set of tools for the training and development of pharmacometricians. Edited and written by key leaders in the field, this flagship text on pharmacometrics:* Integrates theory and practice to let the reader apply principles and concepts.* Provides a comprehensive set of tools for training and developing expertise in the pharmacometric field.* Is unique in including computer code information with the examples. This volume is an invaluable resource for all pharmacometricians, statisticians, teachers, graduate and undergraduate students in academia, industry, and regulatory agencies.
