  • I participated in the 1st and/or 2nd edition of the Pharmacometrics Spring School with MonolixSuite. Do you recommend to participate in the 3rd edition?
    In the 3rd edition of the spring school we will use the new release of the MonolixSuite: 2023R1. We will show some of its new features. The main content of the lectures and the hands-on sessions will be the same as in the previous editions, so if you feel confident with this material there is no need to participate in the school this year. However, you can always take advantage of the live chat and Q&A with the Lixoft team during the lecture sessions.
