Uppsala Pharmacometrics Summer School

The Uppsala Pharmacometrics Research Group is happy to invite PhD students from all around the world to the 9th annual Uppsala Pharmacometrics Summer School (UPSS).

Dates: August 12th-23rd, 2019UPSS - Previous Years
Place: Uppsala, Sweden

Intended for: PhD students

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, 2 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 grant: Novartis traveling grant covers travelling costs for up to five PhD students enrolled at universities in developing countries. You can apply for the grant on the same website as for the summer school

Maximum number of participants: 25
