Welcome to the Otago Pharmacometrics Group at the School of Pharmacy
The OPG is located within the discipline of clinical pharmacy. We use pharmacokinetic–pharmacodynamic principles to individualise medicine choice, dose, and dosing regimen to best meet patient needs. Members of this group have backgrounds that span clinical pharmacy, medicine, pharmaceutical science, bioengineering, and statistics.
We collaborate with other universities, clinicians, and industrial partners in New Zealand, the UK, Australia, Europe the USA and elsewhere. Current therapeutic areas include: coagulation, musculoskeletal diseases, renal drug clearance, inflammatory bowel disease, clinical toxicology & toxinology, and malaria. We also work in the special populations of paediatrics and obesity.
