GPS for QSP: A Summary of the ACoP6 Symposium on Quantitative Systems Pharmacology and a Stage for Near-Term Efforts in the Field

CPT Pharmacometrics Syst Pharmacol. 2016 Sep;5(9):449-51. doi: 10.1002/psp4.12109. Epub 2016 Sep 17.


Quantitative Systems Pharmacology (QSP) is experiencing increased application in the drug discovery and development process. Like its older sibling, systems biology, the QSP field is comprised of a mix of established disciplines and methods, from molecular biology to engineering to pharmacometrics. As a result, there exist critical segments of the discipline that differ dramatically in approach and a need to bring these groups together toward a common goal.
