Predictive Modelers



Workshop Summary

Modeling and simulation as a discipline exists in many areas of pharmaceutical sciences, including drug discovery, manufacturing, development, and patient use. Although niche workshops and conferences exist where predictive modelers meet and discuss specialized state-of-the art techniques and tools within their specific field, rarely do we cross outside of our area of expertise and engage with modelers in other pharma disciplines... there are many opportunities for education and collaboration that are missed because we are not talking enough with one another!

This workshop will bring together predictive modelers from academic, industry and regulatory environments working in pharmaceutical sciences. We will discover our commonalities and differences while sharing modeling philosophies and best practices. Focal points will include technical methodologies and tools as well as strategic approaches for communication and influence. We will be introduced to some of the latest predictive modeling tools and technologies to stimulate ideas for future development in all of our respective areas of Pharma. The goal of this program is to identify opportunities to work together going forward to provide a more comprehensive and influential quantitative basis for decision making within our institutions.

Participants of this event will:

  1. Compare and contrast tools, techniques, and language across predictive modeling disciplines in pharmaceutical sciences
  2. Discuss modeling philosophy and create best practices for predictive modeling
  3. Develop approaches for influencing decision makers through strategic communication of modeling results
  4. Discover state-of-the-art and emerging tools and technologies to motivate future development of predictive modeling in pharmaceutical sciences
  5. Identify opportunities for collaboration, efficiency gain, and cross-discipline learning
