Pharmacology: from womb to grave

Dr. Birgit Koch, Dr. Sinno Simons and Laura Peeters, PhD Candidate

In this lecture womb to grave pharmacology is discussed. Amongst all pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, therapeutic drug monitoring and toxicology in research, education and clinical setting are introduced in this lecture. Current pharmacotherapy is most often based on one dose fits all strategy. In our ACE our focus is to individualize pharmacotherapy and to optimize dosing, moving towards a ‘one dose fits one’ strategy.
