Overview

This workshop covers applied aspects of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics and will take the format of simulations, to model steady state drug plasma concentrations and solving clinical scenarios and emergencies using patient mannequins in a hospital setting. 

Students will be expected to play an active role in modelling, analysis, interpretation and problem solving.

Learning Objectives

  • Gain an understanding of the relationship of pharmacokinetic parameters that define clinical outcomes
  • Solve problems in pharmacology using case-based clinical simulations and human mannequins in a simulated hospital setting

Speaker Information

Dr Louise Mackenzie: Senior Lecturer in Pharmacology at the University of Hertfordshire for the past 4 years, with teaching responsibilities on 13 modules across 4 different degree programmes. Teaching area covers cardiovascular pharmacology and physiology, pulmonary pharmacology and lung physiology, as well as basic pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics. My area of research is the control of vascular function by PPAR receptors and the side effects of NSAIDs.

Dr Lisa Lione: Senior Lecturer in pharmacology at the University of Hertfordshire for the past 8 years. Lisa’s teaching and research is collaborative combining her specialised in vivo skills with industry experience in drug discovery and translational science. Lisa is particularly interested in the promotion and sharing of best practice in animal welfare, ethics and the 3Rs (she is a member of the British Pharmacological Society Animal Welfare In vivo Pharmacology committee) as well as raising awareness of pharmacology and drugs education in schools and universities (she is an expert advisory panel member for Mentor UK).
