Week 9:  Drug Design -- Pharmacokinetic Modeling

During this week (residential weekend!), we will look at one of the basic guiding principles of pharmacology and drug design -- ADME(T) -- absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion, and toxicology.  During the residential weekend, you will construct, from scratch, a pharmacokinetics (pharm=drug; kinetics=speed) model.  This model will allow you to play the role of a physician, looking to determine the correct dosing regimen for a patient with an illness. Try not to kill your patient!
