GMP -2-day workshop “Physiologically based Pharmacokinetic (PBPK) Modeling” (8-9 Decembre 2022 – Marseille): Registration open

Dear Colleagues and Members,

We are happy to announce that registrations for the 1st 2-day workshops on PBPK modeling co-organized by the directors of the Master 2 in PK (Lyon, Marseille, Paris, Rennes and Toulouse), PhinC Development and the GMP are open. This workshop will be held on 8 & 9 December at Marseille.

This workshop is designed to provide participants with the necessary information needed for Physiologically Based Pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modeling. New Chemical and Biological Entities will be considered when applicable. You can find the program hereafter.

The number of participants is limited to 30:

  • 20 students registered in one of the 5 Master co-organizing this workshop (please contact the director of your Master if you are interested) – Fee: free registration
  • 10 industrial/academic delegates – Fee: 750 € (700 € for registration + 50 € for GMP membership)

You can find all relevant information (program, speakers, location…) in the attached document or on the GMP website.

For registration and information, please contact Fabrice Hurbin (

Best regards
