I have been active in the field of PK/PD modeling in an industrial
setting in the San Francisco Bay area for almost a year now. Due to
the nature of the industry here (a large portion consisting of small
biotech companies), most PK/PD scientists might be the only source of
these skills in their company with lots of assignments, leaving very
little time for keeping up with general advancement in the field or
occasional discussions with other PK/PD scientists. I am aware of other
scientific fields having a loose network, arranging for occasional
meetings or lectures in the Bay Area. To my knowledge, no such network
exists for PK/PD scientists in the local industry, although we have
very strong academic sites in this geographical area.
I'd like to hear from those of you working in the Bay Area whether
there is a need for such a network and an interest in helping to build
it. I invite those interested in this to contact me directly
(preferably through e-mail) for preliminary discussions.
