The MSc Modelling and Simulation in Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics (PKPD) programme has been developed with an emphasis on mechanistic approaches to assessing and predicting PKPD; such as Physiologically-Based Pharmacokinetics (PBPK).
We view this under the general umbrella of systems biology and hence enable students to apply their knowledge of modelling and simulation in various areas of research within the pharmaceutical industry.
The course focuses on the broad range of issues that make up modelling and simulation efforts during drug development and these are reinforced via hands-on application of the skills to real-world data.
This programme is designed for scientists already working within the pharmaceutical industry who wish to qualify as modellers with hands-on experience and obtain a university degree.
The flexible, distance learning nature of the course means that students can fit their study around their other commitments. The only required time on-site is during the three-week residential introductory package and for the examination.
For the MSc, applicants require a relevant university first degree from a reputable internationally recognised institution (as determined by the PG Office at the University of Manchester). The minimum class degree should be 2.2 or its equivalent. For individual CPD modules, there are no specific entry requirements other than relevant industry experience.
