The nature and extent of the services we provide are determined based on client needs: from smaller projects aiming to support limited questions, to the larger late-phase projects including submission support and post-marketing analyses. Our services are focused on drug usage and healthcare for a broad range of client types (pharmaceutical industry, charitable foundations, government and non-government agencies, and not-for-profit organizations). We also continuously contribute to technical research and methodological enhancements within the broader sector of Model-Informed Drug Development (MIDD).
Pharmetheus currently has a team in excess of 55, globally located in a variety of countries, and we have not stopped growing. Our staff members include modelers from diverse (but complementary) educational and technical backgrounds, with extensive experience of both standard and complex analyses. In collaboration with our scientific advisors, we use cutting-edge tools and methodologies to enable fit-for-purpose deliverables for our clients. Our experienced consultants operate using a range of quantitative approaches, such as population PK, PKPD, PBPK, QSP and NCA analyses. They also provide support for trial design optimization and expert advice in MIDD, clinical pharmacology, statistics, pharmacometrics, and regulatory strategy across the product life-cycle.
Pharmetheus has dedicated data programming support and we have developed systems, processes, and tools employing state-of-the-art project control processes not only to accommodate the dynamic nature of drug development organizations, but also to allow for quick delivery even of the largest projects.
At Pharmetheus we take considerable pride in our company values and our enthusiastic, dynamic, and integrated team. Altogether, our strength is to ensure our clients the supply of high-quality and timely deliverables, compatible with the latest regulatory standards.
Our vision is to realize the full potential of quantitative approaches to improve health
Our strength is to deliver timely and reproducible model-informed drug development services: from efficient routine analyses to innovative solutions for complex systems
At the core of all our work are our agreed common values
Dr. Peter Milligan, CEO
“Effective feedback and feedforward of information across and within compounds can promote an environment of “joined-up thinking” within organizations. This is an important element of Model- Informed Drug Development (MIDD) as we obtain insights on a compound’s properties by efficiently leveraging accumulated data. These insights can be used to frame the most impactful compound-related risks and shape contingency plans that enable these risks to be managed/mitigated appropriately. MIDD can greatly aid the ability of decision makers to arrive at strategy and/or design achieving a favorable outcome.
At Pharmetheus we understand the importance of joined-up thinking. We have experience of adopting “fit-for-purpose” activities and we can assist our partners to overcome their technical and/or organizational challenges.”
Dr. Peter Milligan, Chief Executive Officer

“Pharmetheus has had fantastic growth over the years. Our clients (>60) range from big pharma to small biotech companies which the vast majority are repeat business. We have a stable and healthy financial situation which is one of the pillars that ensures a long-term sustainability of the company. It allows us to continue to grow and develop Pharmetheus, to create value to the industry in collaboration with our clients and stakeholders and to offer a creative and learning environment to our employees.”
Emma Ångström, Chief Financial Officer
“Pharmacometrics is an applied science where research and application occur in both academia and industry. This has characterized its evolution. Academia develops methodology for improved applications and industry develops and implements methodology to support application needs. The exchanges of ideas, tools and experiences between the organizations speed up the maturation of our field and promote model-informed drug discovery, development and usage. Pharmetheus is at the cross-roads of these activities and an active contributor in its own right.”

“Inspiration for the name Pharmetheus came from the titan Prometheus in Greek mythology. Prometheus was known for his intelligence and as a champion of mankind. The name Prometheus means approximately ‘the one that thinks on beforehand‘, his brother Epimetheus’ name means ‘the one that thinks afterwards’. We can think of Pharmetheus as the lesser-known sibling ‘the one that thinks of Pharma’.”
Dr. Martin Bergstrand
“When founding Pharmetheus, we had the vision – to realize the full potential of quantitative approaches, impacting decision making. This naturally led us to a philosophy of being a partner to our clients, and to a commitment of delivering with the highest quality. In practice, we always engage with our clients to identify their needs, to provide tailored value and for effective communication of results. The Pharmetheus culture still today reflects our ambition of bringing learning to the projects in all of its aspects.”

“Our vision when creating the reproducible reporting system used at Pharmetheus was to support a fully traceable and auto-documented workflow for Pharmacometric analyses – from source data to final report. We are very proud of having accomplished this and are grateful of the positive feedback we continuously receive about our reporting system from both clients and regulatory authorities.”
