In this video from the 2015 HPC Advisory Council Switzerland Conference, Nishant Kumar Agrawal from Tata Consultancy Services presents: Parallel Implementation of PK-PD Parameter Estimation on Xeon Phi Using Grid Search Method.

Pharmacokinetic (PK) and Pharmacodynamic(PD) parameters determine the develop-ability of a drug candidate and estimation of them are time consuming and there is an urgent need for time efficient approaches. In the present talk, we showcase the parallel implementation of Grid search method on Xeon Phi using stepwise optimization techniques as a promising approach for the robust estimation of PK-PD parameters. The solution described herein, is of great importance in decision making in Pharmaceutical Industry.”
