Despite the increasing attention on the topic of pharmacokinetics our understanding of 
advanced concepts and its applications in drug development remains limited. The 
intention of this book is to bridge the theory-practice gap by providing advanced 
pharmacokinetics concepts, methods, and applications. Graduate students as well as 
scientists in the area of clinical pharmacology and pharmacokinetics will find the 
contents of this book very enlightening and helpfull. The comprehensive coverage of 
topics on pharmacokinetics in this book offers readers “à la carte” choice to build their 
knowledge based on their scientific needs.
I would like to personally thank all the authors for their excellent contributions to the 
book. These researchers are at the forefront of innovation in pharmacokinetics and its 
application to the clinical science and to drug development.
