4th Symposium of the Asian Pharmacometrics Network

Pre-conference Monolix Workshop



The 4th APN Symposium Pre-conference Monolix Workshop will be held on 7 and 8 November, 2022. It will focus on population modeling for model-informed drug development (MIDD) and simulations of clinical trials using the MonolixSuite.

Students, doctoral/post-doctoral researchers, and industry professionals will gain confidence in using the MonolixSuite applications over the week-long course. You’ll also learn how to make your modeling work more exciting and efficient!

This is a FREE and completely ONLINE event.


FREE TEMPORARY LICENCE for Monolix will provided for the workshop participants:


This activation key is valid until Dec 7, 2022.

The Spring School will consist of 2 sessions, 3 hours each.

It will cover all steps of a modeling and simulation workflow, including:

  • Day 1: Monday 7th November, 2:30pm-5:30pm Malaysian Time

Data visualization and population analysis in Monolix. Theoretical recap, run setup in Monolix (using the library) and estimation tasks. Model diagnosis with the plots and statistical tests. Covariate search.

  • Day 2: Tuesday 8th November, 2:30pm-5:30pm Malaysian Time

Writing a custom structural model using the mlxtran language. Simulations using Simulx.

HANDS-ON: After each session you can use additional material (datasets, projects and instructions) to put your knowledge into practice. We will present the solutions at the beginning and end of the last session.



The sessions will be recorded and the videos will be available to the participants for the duration of the school (until Dec 5, 2022).

Dr Pauline Traynard joined Lixoft in 2017 as Applications Manager. She has a multidisciplinary background focusing on computational and systems biology. After a double engineering degree specializing in computational biology from Ecole Polytechnique and MINES ParisTech (Paris, France) obtained in 2012, she applied different mathematical formalisms to model biological rhythms as part of her PhD studies at INRIA and IBENS Paris, and prostate cancer as a postdoctoral fellow in Institut Curie.

Frano Mihaljevic is an application manager at Lixoft. After earning his master’s degree in Pharmacy from University of Zagreb, Croatia, he gained experience as analytical researcher in research and development department of Teva Pharmaceuticals, where he was mostly focused on biorelevant in vitro release method and in vitro-in vivo correlation model development. He joined Lixoft in 2022.
