Laboratory of Clinical Pharmacokinetics
Administered drugs are absorbed into the body, distributed to various organs where they exhibit their effects, and are finally eliminated from the body. Pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics (PK/PD) is the study of these processes. In our laboratory, we study the PK/PD of candidate drug compounds by measuring the plasma concentrations of these compounds and biomarkers for drug development. Furthermore, we evaluate mathematical models to predict the plasma concentrations and effects of drugs for safer and more effective usage.
