PAGANZ Sydney 2021 Virtual Meeting

The annual Population Approach Group in Australia and New Zealand (PAGANZ) meeting will be the first virtual PAGANZ meeting hosted in Sydney, Australia by the school of Pharmacy, University of Sydney; St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney and St Vincent’s Clinical School, UNSW from Wednesday 27th January to Friday 29th January 2021.

Who should attend?

The PAGANZ meeting is the Australasian forum for scientists with a research and professional interest in the use of the population approach in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. A strong focus of this meeting is the application of population modelling and simulation techniques in the experimental, clinical and regulatory settings of drug development.

This meeting is designed for scientists and clinicians working in basic or clinical pharmacology research, pharmaceutical industry, regulatory bodies, and postgraduate students. The meeting combines a workshop given by leaders in the field and a scientific meeting giving researchers the opportunity to present and discuss their own work. This is an informal meeting and in the past has been very productive in helping and guiding researchers in this important area of pharmacology and drug development.


Wednesday 27th January to Friday 29th January 2021 (Sydney, Australia time (AEST)).

Preconference Work Shops

The Population Analysis Work Shop (PAWS) courses will consist of lectures and demonstrations. After the demonstrations, tutors will be available for consultation and assistance. The Beginners Course for NONMEM and the Intermediate Course will be conducted as parallel sessions. Attendance at the Intermediate Course requires experience with the conduct of at least one population approach analysis.

The beginners course will introduce the theory and practice of population modelling with a demonstration session with NONMEM.

The intermediate course will provide an introduction to Time to Event analysis with a demonstration and Q&A session.

PAGANZ Scientific Meeting

The PAGANZ meeting will include a symposium highlighting progress in the application of the population approach to pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics since the first PAGANZ meeting 20 years ago. The symposium speakers include international and local experts in the field and presents a unique opportunity for Australasian scientists to see the best in action. Sessions will be dedicated to free communications and discussions providing a forum for researchers to present both completed work and work in progress and receive feedback and advice from their peers in an informal setting. The preliminary 2021 PAGANZ Scientific Program is available here. The program will be finalised once the abstract deadline has been met.
