  • Reduce time spent writing code
  • Supercharge your workflow with packages such as dplyr, tidyr, ggplot2, PKPDmisc and vpc
  • Learn best practices in project design and management
  • Create automated and reproducible reports with Rmarkdown
  • Apply the concepts and techniques learned to real-world examples!

Targeted Course Material

Specifically designed to address pharmacometric projects

Hands-on examples

Helps reinforce the course material with numerous examples

Solve Real-world problems

Larger scale hands-on projects emulate real world problems and provide templates for future projects

Frequently Asked Questions

How much prior R experience should I have?

Attendees should have completed at least one project using R. At a minimum, they should be able to read in data, and perform basic data manipulations (eg summarize data, subset out a sub-group).

What comes with the workshop?

All attendees will be provided with in-depth slides, codes, practice problems, and solutions to hands on material. Two weeks prior to the workshop, all attendees will be provided with a 'starter pack' of pre-request material to make sure to have a suitable baseline

What is the workshop teaching style?

We have found that a combination of short modular examples to introduce topics and larger scale hands-on examples best balance quick comprehension as well as how to apply concepts to more advanced situations

What can I do to prepare?

1 month before the workshop, a list of basic resources will be provided to refresh attendee's foundation. Additional optional resources will be provided to help attendees help identify areas they may wish to as questions or discuss in more depth.

Dr. Vijay Ivaturi and Devin Pastoor are members of the Center for Translational Medicine at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy

Dr. Ivaturi's research focuses on the development of methods and tools for quantitative clinical pharmacology. He obtained his doctorate in experimental and clinical pharmacology from the University of Minnesota, which he followed with a post-doctoral fellowship in pharmacometrics at Uppsala University in Sweden before joining the CTM

Devin has worked for the past 3 years interfacing insights gained from translational models with tools to speed up the modeling and data analysis process. He has authored over 5 R packages and continues to develop new tools to facilitate model-based drug development.

What do people think?

What used to take twenty lines of code I learned how to do in two - and it runs faster!
The examples were highly relevant and I was able to immediately apply what I've learned to my day-to-day work.
The topics were easily understable and extremely well presented. I feel so much more productive now!
