Clinical Researcher: Pre-Competitive Research Propels Modernization of Drug Development Using Modeling and Simulation

It’s hard to imagine that 37 leading, global biopharmaceutical companies would be willing to partner to develop a new technology and progress a scientific field, but that is exactly what the members of the Simcyp Consortium have achieved. Working together in a pre-competitive, collaborative research environment, the consortium’s members are advancing physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) mechanistic modeling and simulation to predict pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) outcomes in virtual patient populations…
