Applied pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic research.

The unit performs applied pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic research (PK-PD modeling) of drugs and toxic agents in vulnerable patient populations (e.g. children, critically-ill patients in the intensive care unit and the emergency department), in close collaboration with the hospital pharmacy and clinical departments of the Ghent University Hospital. For its pediatric drug research, the unit is a research partner of the national IWT-SBO research consortium SAFEPEDRUG (www.safepedrug.eu).
