Webinar | Pediatric Drug Development: Allometry and Other Empirical Models

This webinar covers 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
