Neural network and nonlinear mix effect modeling’s ability to explore both the accuracy of a module informed drug discovery and as a mechanism to streamline drug development process

    Author Name(s) Crystal Fotheringham Additional Author(s) Shaundee JamesonBrisa Porter-GarciaDaniel RamirezJessica Tapia Faculty Advisor(s) Dr. Alona Kryshchenko Abstract Modeling and simulation also known as model-informed drug discovery and development have become instrumental in streamlining the drug development process. It allows to integrate knowledge from one phase to the next, and from one indication to the next, both in terms of successes and failures. Modeling and simulation integrate both computer-aided mathematical simulation… Read More »Neural network and nonlinear mix effect modeling’s ability to explore both the accuracy of a module informed drug discovery and as a mechanism to streamline drug development process
