    Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics:
    Personalised Dosing Algorithms:
    Pharmacokinetics is the study of what the body does to a drug and Pharmacodynamics is the study of what a drug does to the body. As well as identifying the variables that contribute to inter-patient variability in the response to specific drugs (e.g. Warfarin), the aim is then to combine this information into personalised dosing algorithms to improve both the efficacy and safety of prescribed doses.
