Committee Purpose

  • To advance the field of “model-informed precision dosing” and its application in the clinical setting across different therapeutic areas.
  • To improve the design of clinical trials based on PM models using optimising study designs.
  • To develop and share educational tools about clinical pharmacometrics.
  • To have transversal activities with other committees of the IATDMCT.
  • To actively participate in joint meetings with other societies.

Pharmacometrics (PM) has become progressively a key science in the drug development process and increasingly gaining importance in clinical study design and patient care, e.g. to inform dosing decisions within the framework of thereapeutic drug monitoring. It involves the development of (PB)PK or PK/PD or PK/PD/PG models that provide knowledge about the behaviour of a drug and how it can be optimally used. We believe pharmacometrics can help to describe or predict drug concentrations, their relationship with drug effects and clinical impacts. The application of PM models, e.g. using software tools, can also be very helpful to render personalized dose adjustments based on a patient’s individual parameters available in the clinical setting.


The committee will organize the pre-congress symposium in the IATDMCT 2021 congress in Rome. This meeting is targeted on people not involved in PK/PD modelling at this moment.

To achieve more efficient use of PK/PD data we will collaborate with other committees, and organize joint symposia for upcoming conferences.

Roundtable in Rome: the use of machine learning approaches in clinical pharmacology.

  • Article on graduation of PK/PD studies for systematic reviews
  • Updating articles about pharmacometric teaching
