The population approach to modeling and NONMEM are used to develop structural and statistical pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic models. Patient demographics are probed as potential covariates for pharmacokinetic and/or pharmacodynamic parameters.

The objective of the research is to identify patient characteristics that result in altered pharmacokinetic or pharmacodynamic parameters and to allow optimum drug doses to be identified in diverse patient groups. The research has involved drugs from many different therapeutic areas.
