The Banff International Research Station will host the "Model-Informed Drug Discovery and Quantitative Systems Pharmacology" workshop in Banff from August 9 to August 11, 2024.

Drug design and development are costly and lengthy. Mathematical and computational modelling anchored in model-informed drug development (MIDD) and quantitative systems pharmacology (QSP) methodologies are integral to accelerating the R&D pipeline. In parallel, MIDD and QSP can be used to better understand the biological basis of drug responses and fuel new biomedical research paths. This workshop will bring together experts in the fields of MIDD and QSP with the goal of strengthening ties between industrial and academic researchers and advancing these exciting fields.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), and Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology.
