ISoP/ACCP Clinical Pharmacometrics Special Interest Group


In 2017, the International Society of Pharmacometrics (ISoP) and the American College of Clinical Pharmacology® (ACCP) jointly created the Clinical Pharmacometrics Special Interest Group (SIG).  The ISoP SIGs are communities with a shared interest in advancing a specific area of knowledge, learning or technology, where members cooperate to affect or to produce solutions within their particular field. The SIGs communicate, meet, develop training materials, develop position papers and publications, support students and organize programming ideas.

The Clinical Pharmacometrics SIG’s mission is to promote the application of pharmacometrics to direct patient care and foster an international SIG of scientists and clinicians across a spectrum of therapeutic specialties. This group is working on the improvement of the rational use of drugs by bridging pharmacometrics and clinical practice, which will positively impact the lives of patients worldwide. Given the overlapping interests of ISoP and ACCP in these areas, these organizations enthusiastically co-sponsor the Clinical Pharmacometrics SIG. Both ISoP and ACCP members are invited to join the Clinical Pharmacometrics SIG and participate in organizational planning and professional discussions. 


1. Create and maintain a forum for communication and collaboration between pharmacometricians with clinical interest and clinicians with an interest in pharmacometrics
2. To advance the field of personalized medicine through expanded use of pharmacometrics in clinical practice
