Pharmacokinetics and Drug Disposition

Allergan-USC Industry Fellowship

This one- year fellowship focuses on the translational science efforts at Allergan. The fellow will be provided learning opportunities in the translation of nonclinical data and existing clinical data to guide dose regimen selection for future clinical activities. As part of the training program, the fellow will mine existing clinical data to guide nonclinical model development in an effort to better predict human response. This fellowship is intended to enhance the postdoctoral research training of the applicant through providing hands-on training in the application of pharmacokinetic and drug disposition principles and modeling techniques to better characterize the PK/PD relationship understanding for Allergan programs.

Learning Activities

  • Gain an appreciation of the role and contributions of a Pharmacokinetics and Drug Disposition scientist in an industry setting
  • Integration of data from multiple sources to build a comprehensive database of PK, PK/PD and TK information for Allergan compounds
  • Hands-on training and experience with modeling and graphic software
  • Creating and delivering presentations to guide project team discussions with respect to dose selection
