Pharmokinetics (Rates of change of medication concentrations)

Faculty Commons material developed by Deva O'Neil - Published May 27, 2021

Pharmokinetics describes changes in concentrations of a drug with time in a body. This computational lab introduces students to the simplest model of pharmokinetics (the one-compartment model). It was designed as a remote-friendly lab for a Physics for the Life Sciences course. Students apply what they have learned about rates of change (first introduced through radioactivity) to study the absorption and elimination of medications.
