First, let me introduce myself. My full name is Gordon B. Thomas (email me here), and I am an independent consultant in the general areas of pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD).

The primary reason for setting up this page is to get acquainted with pharmaceutical scientists and statisticians (perhaps industry-based) who work with relatively large data bases from regulatory type Phase I studies. Why this particular group, you ask. The short answer is:-time pressure usually does not permit industry-based workers to engage in the detailed "mining" of the data in the way an academic scientist can.
