Tumor growth inhibition (TGI) modeling with MonolixSuite

Tuesday 27 June 2023 – entire day

This training will give you the keys to confidently and efficiently work on tumor growth data in Monolix and avoid common pitfalls. During this workshop, we will provide an overview of the most common TG and TGI models (included in a modular Monolix library), their key characteristics and discuss guidelines for the modeling of tumor growth and tumor growth inhibition data. Use of custom user-defined models and methods for VPC bias corrections will also be shown.
The workshop will alternate lectures and interactive hands-on sessions, using real dataset examples to show how to model tumor growth data with Monolix, including how to choose a first model depending on the data characteristics, estimate the parameters and diagnose the model. Joint modeling of PK, tumor growth and time-to-event such as survival data will also be demonstrated.

Participants are expected to have a basic knowledge of Monolix. People new to Monolix are invited to follow the workshop “Introductory course on pharmacometrics modeling with Monolix” on the previous day. Temporary licences for the MonolixSuite will be provided.

This is an in-person workshop taking place in A Coruña (Spain), as a satellite event of the PAGE conference.
Registration form available at the bottom at this webpage.
