An opinion is expressed on the past, present and future roles of pharmacokinetic–pharmacodynamic research in the context of UK clinical pharmacology. On the basis of its current constitution, it seems unlikely that this area of research will be driven from within academic clinical pharmacology in the UK. Therefore, in order to bring its expertise and experience to bear effectively on the evolving emphasis on translational medicine and modelling and simulation, this community would need to reach out beyond its current preoccupations to increase interactions with the next generation of pharmacokineticists and pharmacometricians.
