Join us on Wednesday, September 2nd from 1:00pm – 2:15pm EDT for our second webinar on allometric scaling, which will focus on pediatric drug development. Nuventra’s Senior Consultant and former FDA Reviewer, Iftekhar Mahmood, Ph.D., will lead the session titled, “Pediatric Drug Development: Allometry and Other Empirical Models.”

This webinar will cover an introduction of pediatric drug development using allometric scaling and other empirical models. Other empirical models will include Physiologically-Based Pharmacokinetics (PBPK) and Population PK (popPK). At the end of this webinar attendees should have a better understanding of:

  • Allometry and its appropriate application to pediatric drug development
  • Simplicity of allometric scaling in comparison to other complex empirical models
  • Dose selection for first-in-pediatric clinical trials

Meet the Presenter
