Stephen Duffull is Professor of Clinical Pharmacy and the Dean of the School of Pharmacy at the University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand. He runs a modelling and simulation lab within the School of Pharmacy. Research interests include optimal design, MCMC methods particularly in clinical toxicology and haemostasis. He has been involved in the area of PKPD and nonlinear mixed effects modelling for 20 years.
Mats O. Karlsson is professor of pharmacometrics at Uppsala University, Sweden where he leads a multi-disciplinary research group of more than 30 scientists. His research interests focus on methodological aspects of non-linear mixed effects model building and applications of PKPD modelling in drug development and drug usage.
France Mentré is Professor of Biostatistics at the University  Paris Diderot (Paris 7), France.  She heads an INSERM research team on Biostatistical Modelling and Pharmacometrics.  She has worked on development and application of methods for nonlinear mixed-effects models in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics for more than 20 years. Her main research areas in this field are optimal design, model evaluation and anti-infective agents.
