  • modelling and simulation of pharmacokinetics, drug-drug interactions and pharmacodynamics in patient populations;
  • analysis of inter-individual variability in drug metabolizing enzyme activity;
  • optimal design of early phase clinical trials with new therapies and drug combinations;
  • applications of systems biology approach to prediction of drug absorption, distribution and Elimination;
  • extrapolation of in vitro data to predict in vivo pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics;
  • applications of PKPD in drug development and therapeutics, particularly endocrinology, drug abuse, and paediatric pharmacology.

Teaching and learning

PhD/MPhil programmes are based on individual research projects that last three to four years (PhD) or one year (MPhil), working with a specific Primary Supervisor and Co-Supervisor(s).
