Certara Scientists to Present Model-informed Drug Development, Systems Pharmacology and MBMA Advances at PAGE 2018

May 29, 2018

Certara will participate in 28 sessions at the conference in addition to helping support the PAGE Student Sponsorship and PAGE Football Championship

PRINCETON, NJ – May 29, 2018 – Certara®, the global leader in model-informed drug development, regulatory science, health economic outcomes research, market access and real-world evidence services, today announced its participation in 28 sessions at the Population Approach Group in Europe (PAGE) 2018 Annual Meeting. PAGE is a UK-based, nonprofit organization, which is committed to taking a population approach to data analysis. This year’s conference will be held from May 29 to June 1 in Montreux, Switzerland.

“As a leader in modeling and simulation, Certara is committed to educating the next generation of pharmacometricians and other quantitative scientists, and PAGE provides an excellent opportunity to share our knowledge with young drug development scientists. To support that goal, we have established Certara University and collaborated with academia to create centers of excellence around the world. We also support fellowships, scholarships and new investigator awards,” said Certara Chief Scientific Officer Professor Amin Rostami-Hodjegan, PharmD, PhD, FCP.

Certara is continuing its multi-year tradition of helping to fund the PAGE Student Sponsorship. This program permits presenters, who have no other means of financial support, to attend the conference. An introduction to this year’s PAGE Student Sponsorship winners can be found on Certara’s blog at https://www.certara.com/2018/05/18/spotlight-on-the-page-student-sponsorship-winners. As Certara believes in working and playing hard, it is also co-sponsoring the PAGE Football Championship 2018.
