Welcome to PaSiPhIC
4th Pacific Coast Statisticians and Pharmacometricians Innovation Conference
Narrowing the distribution between stochastic scientists
by bringing Statisticians and Pharmacometricians together

Sponsored by Cal Poly Department of Statistics and the UCSF Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences
What Is PaSiPhIC?
Traditionally, biostatistics has played a central role in assuring validity of pharmaceutical testing by formalizing the rigorous empirical analysis, summarization and statistical interpretation of experimental and observational data. The emerging science of pharmacometrics, building on the biostatistical traditions, provides additional powerful approaches of mechanistic quantification of the various aspects of drug therapy, including efficacy, safety, clinical pharmacology, variability among patients and the influence of pharmacotherapy on disease progress. Both statisticians and pharmacometricians interface with other scientific areas such as biology and physiology, engineering, mathematics and computer science and, while sharing several commonalities between themselves, they have evolved as complementary disciplines. The purpose of this conference is to provide statisticians and pharmacometricians a forum to share pertinent information concerning the application of these disciplines to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries and translational research in biomedical sciences.
