This book explains the basics of modeling and simulations programs, how they work and are applied for different biopharmaceutical properties, and their applications in drug development. The author offers a valuable guide to the design of drug formulations for achieving desired medicinal effects, featuring practical application examples in drug research. Using illustrations and practice problems rather than heavy math, the applications covered include running and interpreting models, compound and formulation selection, mechanisms, and virtual clinical trials. This useful text will guide pharmaceutical professionals in the tools and practices of modeling biopharmaceutics.
