PRINCETON, NJ – March 4, 2016 – Certara®, the global biosimulation technology-enabled drug development company, today announced that its scientists will be participating in 12 sessions at the American Society for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics (ASCPT) 2016 Annual Meeting. This conference will be held from Mar. 8-12 at the Hilton Bayfront in San Diego, CA.
“Biosimulation (modeling and simulation) has become a trusted approach of sponsors, payers and regulatory agencies and it is now being used to optimize and increase the predictability of the most crucial R&D, regulatory and patient care decisions,” said Certara Chief Executive Officer Edmundo Muniz, MD, PhD.
“At ASCPT, we will demonstrate how physiologically-based pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic modeling can help determine appropriate drug dosing in vulnerable populations such as pediatric and elderly patients, pregnant women, and those who have cancer or have received an organ transplant,” said Chief Scientific Officer Amin Rostami, PharmD, PhD.
“We will also provide examples where we have used Model-Based Meta-Analysis to study the comparative effectiveness of different treatments,” added President of Certara Strategic Consulting Jaap Mandema, PhD.
