Lianjin (Clement) Cai

Office: PharmacoAnalytics, 6th floor, Salk Hall, 3501 Terrace St



Program: MS
Track: PSP
Advisor: Junmei Wang, PhD

Lianjin graduated from a joint Pharmacolgy B.S program of China Pharmaceutical University and University of Strathclyde and currently is a 2nd-year Master student in Pharmacometrics and System Pharmacology (PSP) track to study more computational modeling expertise in drug devlopment pipeline.

His research interest is mainly to apply integrative translational model-informed drug development (MIDD) approaches to inform drug development and optimize decision-making in Clinical Pharmacology. He is also intrigued by machine-learning techniques application in Pharmceutical field integrating various biomedical '-omics' data and Health Outcomes research.

He is engaged in integrating some useful in-silico predictive tools encompassing ADMET predictor, molecular dynamics (MD) modeling, Physiology-based Pharmacokinetics/Pharmacodynamics modeling (PBPK/PD), populational PK/PD methods, and Quantitative Systems Pharmacology (QSP) modalities to investigate opioids drug exposure and efficacy/addiction in special population using available non-clinical and clinical data.
