Quantitative Pharmacology (QP) Network

Network Goals

Scientific Expertise:
  • The Quantitative Pharmacology Network brings together and advances quantitative disciplines across diverse backgrounds, including industry, academia, and regulatory embracing new technology and approaches.
Catalyst for Innovation:
  • The Quantitative Pharmacology Network fosters cutting-edge science in the areas of pharmacometrics and systems pharmacology, and knowledge around biologics, and supports (pre-competitive) collaborative efforts in these areas.
Influence and Impact:
  • The Quantitative Pharmacology Network is the “go to” voice for the application of Quantitative Pharmacology to drug/biologics development and usage, and catalyzes broader awareness, education and adoption of these principles by scientists engaged in the complementary Networks.
Education and Communication:
  • The Quantitative Pharmacology Network offers multiple educational opportunities and encourages submissions to the ASCPT Journal Family as well as open dialogue among editors and members.
Organizational Effectiveness:
  • The Quantitative Pharmacology Network has established a rhythm of business that supports its leadership using the ASCPT calendar as a guide and proactively develop future leaders.

Upcoming Webinar
ASCPT Members-Only Webinar presented by the Quantitative Pharmacology Network and the Career Development Committee
Title: Soft Skills Needed to Improve Communication and Influence People: Changing Minds from “All Models are Wrong” to “Some are Useful"
Date and Time: Thursday, July 18, 2019, 1:00 pm ET
Speaker: Stacey Tannenbaum, PhD
Moderator: Virginia (Ginny) Schmith, PhD
Description: Presenting clinical pharmacology data and modeling results to interdisciplinary teams in a clear and concise manner is extremely important to ensure that your research can influence clinical drug development or clinical therapeutics. The issue is that many times the impact of modeling and simulation may be difficult for interdisciplinary scientists to understand or interpret because they come to the table with differences in backgrounds and opinions. This webinar will address what you can do differently before, during, and after your modeling work to influence people and avoid critics ignoring your work. These skills are critical to teach trainees and should be continuously nurtured in both emerging and established scientists in order for Pharmacometrics to truly impact drug development decisions going forward.

Quantitative Pharmacology Network Hot Topics Initiative
One of the primary goals of the Quantitative Pharmacology Network is to enhance the educational opportunities for members. Help further the “Hot Topic” communications and raise awareness of new tools and methods developing in quantitative pharmacology, news and views relevant to the discipline, emerging challenges and opportunities, topics of active scientific debate, etc. Suggest your topic via email to agrawal.scientist@gmail.com or hhassan@rx.umaryland.edu today!

Quantitative Pharmacology Influence & Impact Initiative
Under the visionary leadership of Anne C. Heatherington, PhD, the Impact & Influence Initiative was launched to highlight the impact of Quantitative Pharmacology approaches in clinical pharmacology, translational medicine and therapeutics across the discovery, development, regulation and post-marketing applications. The crowd-sourced compendium of impactful case-examples along with detailed speaker notes provided by the contributors to the Quantitative Pharmacology Network at the ASCPT 2017 Annual Meeting and their contact information are now available: On behalf of the ASCPT Quantitative Pharmacology Network, we would like to again invite you to contribute to a new case study for the Influence and Impact Initiative that broadly highlights the impact of Quantitative Pharmacology in discovery and development strategy making, as well as in regulatory and post-marketing decision making. The aim of the initiative is to build upon the first version of the crowd-sourced compendium repository with new state-of-the-art quantitative pharmacology applications to increase awareness, advocacy for and education in applied Quantitative Pharmacology sciences. In addition, the initiative aims to detect advances and new trends in the field.

If you would like to contribute, please let us know your interest by April 17, 2019, by sending an email with the title for your case study to Aline Barth, PhD, or Akshanth Polepally, PhD. Draft case studies and speaker notes would be due May 31, 2019.
