33rd Annual UCSF Course on Pharmacokinetics for Pharmaceutical Scientists

South San Francisco, CA

2/24/2020 - 2/28/2020

8:00am - 12:00pm

This five-day fundamentals course will emphasize basic principles in pharmacokinetics. Presentations will be delivered via lectures and multiple small-group workshops.

The first three and one-half days of this limited-enrollment course will be devoted to essential pharmacokinetic parameters and how they are employed to summarize and predict temporal relationships. The balance of the course will focus on elective topics.
