Dr. Kevin Dykstra, PhD, President and CEO of qPharmetra

Last Friday we kicked off our new weekly podcast series called “It’s Friday – Let’s Journal Club.” Thanks to everyone who tuned in. This week’s guest interview is with Dr. Kevin Dykstra, PhD, who is President and CEO of qPharmetra, a pharmacometric consulting company. Dr. Dykstra stopped by PatientsLikeMe headquarters to talk to our team about the use of modeling and simulation to aid drug development.

After this insightful “Journal Club” session, PatientsLikeMe’s Aaron Fleishman sat down with Dr. Dykstra to learn more about how his team is working to measure the clinical utility of treatments in a systematic, quantitative way. Listen in to hear what exactly that involves and why Dr. Dykstra feels PatientsLikeMe is a “treasure trove of information” that is “incredibly useful” for both patients and drug developers
