Biography of Johan Gabrielsson

Johan Gabrielsson, PhD is professor of integrative Pharmacology at the SLU, Uppsala, Sweden. He has
conducted numerous workshops (6000 participants) on biological PK/PD data analysis.

His research concerns numerical methods for analysis of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic (biomarkers) data. Several projects are sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry and in collaboration with the Fraunhofer-Chalmers Centre in Gothenburg, and Professor LA Peletier at Leiden University. SLU-related projects involve studies of cortisol turnover of horse by dexamethasone treatment. Target-mediated kinetics, dose-response-time analysis of pharmacological data and pattern recognition are other activities that are of great potential importance in drug development for both animals and humans.
