* Announcement for an opportunity  available in the Institute of Computational Comparative Medicine (ICCM) at Kansas State University. The Department of Anatomy and Physiology (A&P), College of Veterinary Medicine, Kansas State University invites applications for the position of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor. This is a tenure track, full-time, 12-month position with rank and salary commensurate with qualifications. The successful candidate will be expected to apply modern computational and pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic modeling solutions to problems in comparative pharmacology, chemical food safety, and/or antimicrobial resistance.

* VetCAST Workshop on quantitative methods for Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (AST) and clinical breakpoint determination in Toulouse (France), 12th to 15th Sept 2017. The first day is a general introduction and the subsequent days will involve hands-on modelling exercises in Phoenix NLME. Workshop Program.



* Upcoming workshop this Fall in Kansas City on modeling approaches to data analysis aimed specifically towards the veterinary pharmaceutical industry. This workshop would also be appropriate for graduate students and anyone in interested in learning more about PKPD modelling.

* The next workshop of the ECVPT on pharmacokinetic analysis will take place from the 27th June  to the 1st of July 2016 in Toulouse, France. and registration form.

* Register now for the 23rd intermediate Workshop on PK/PD Data Analysis 2016 Lisbon  (led by Johan Gabrielsson and Dan Weiner)

* The 25th meeting of the Population Approach Group in Europe will take place in Lisboa, Portugal from the 7th to the 10th of June 2016. Details here.
