M&S Decisions together with Skolkovo Biomedical Technologies Cluster and Skolkovo Open University organized a school on Mathematical modelling in pharmaceutics for biomedical startups and young scientists in Skolkovo Foundation.
The aim of the school was to introduce to the participants the core methods of mathematical modelling, which were widely used for decisions making process during new drugs development.
More than 200 young specialists took part in the event, including undergraduate and post-graduate students from leading Russian universities such as Moscow State University, Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology, Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University, National Research Medical University, Mechnikov North-Western University, Altai State University and others.
On the first day of the school the Skolkovo Hypercube brought together specialists from different areas of biology, chemistry and medicine where mathematical model was actively used. Young scientist had lectures on methods how mathematical modelling was used on different stages of drugs development including:
- different phases of clinical and preclinical trials
- making decisions at drug development
- special focus was made on immuno-oncological research
The second and the third days of the school were devoted to lections and practical trainings in Pharmacometrics, Systems Pharmacology and Translation modelling.
