SAN CARLOS, Calif., Aug. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Rosa & Co. LLC, the leading commercial drug development advisory firm with expertise in Quantitative Systems Pharmacology (QSP)/PhysioPD™, today announced their participation and presentation of a poster at the 2016 World Conference on Pharmacometrics (WCoP) to be held on August 21-24th, 2016 in Brisbane, Australia. The conference will bring together leading international researchers, academics, clinicians and educators to foster discussion and exchange of experiences, ideas, and visions to promote pharmacometrics research and methodology globally.
Dr. Mike Reed, Chief Scientist, PhysioPD™ at Rosa, will present a poster entitled "Application of a quantitative systems pharmacology (QSP) model to evaluate xCT inhibition as a target for central nervous system diseases." The poster will demonstrate that development of a CNS PhysioPD™ Research Platform, a QSP model, is a useful illustration of the key role that QSP modeling can play in providing quantitative integration of internal and external knowledge, mechanistic insight and support decisions in early stage drug discovery.
In recent years, QSP/PhysioPD™ has emerged as a powerful research approach that enables scientific insight and informs decisions from early discovery through clinical development. The most innovative R&D organizations in the industry are increasingly adopting PhysioPD Models as an essential research component for more informed decision-making. Rosa's participation in this international conference further demonstrates its commitment to expanding the adoption of PhysioPD™ into a standard research method used within the pharmaceutical industry.
"Rosa & Co. is honored to share the results of our innovative research and that of our clients, and are honored that our submitted presentations were accepted for inclusion in the WCoP 2016 meeting."
