Uppsala Pharmacometrics Summer School

The Uppsala Pharmacometrics Research Group is happy to invite PhD students from all around the world to the 12th annual Uppsala Pharmacometrics Summer School (UPSS).

Dates: August 12th-23rd, 2024
Place: Uppsala, Sweden

Intended for: PhD students at the time of the Summer School

Topics: The first week will focus on covariate model building, the second week on PKPD modelling of continuous and categorical data in NONMEM 7.

Program: Lectures, hands-on sessions, student group work and student presentations.

Instructors: Mats O. Karlsson and colleagues.

1) Previous experience with the NONMEM software
2) Students will be asked to submit an abstract of an analysis problem they are currently working on or planning to start in the near future
3) Students will also be required to present a poster based on this abstract.

Group work examples:  During each course week, two days will be devoted to working with real data examples brought by the participants. This has been an appreciated component both by the students that have brought the examples and the other group members who get to expand their hands-on experience. For the purpose of these exercises, we ask applicants if they have examples with data that can be used and thus temporarily shared with fellow students in the group.

Fee: Free of charge (transport, accommodation and food are not included)

Traveling grants: Pharmacometrics Africa has provided traveling grants that can be applied for by PhD students from African universities. Pharmetheus traveling grants can be applied for by PhD students enrolled at universities in developing countries. You can apply for these grants in the summer school application form (link posted below). 

Maximum number of participants: 30

Application deadline is: March 24th, 2024
