    Abstract

    Understanding pharmacokinetics in the human body is of the utmost relevance in various stages of medical services. However, a problem arises when conveying pharmacokinetic knowledge to people unfamiliar with the discipline. To overcome this communication barrier between different disciplines, we implemented pharmacokinetic expertise as a computational simulator with a graphical user interface, which is intended to assist instinctive understanding of pharmacokinetics. The developed simulator will help non-experts such as medical personnel, patients, and medicinal chemists to understand and use pharmacokinetics in a rational way.
