This course generates understanding of the range of activities that take a new candidate drug molecule through Development, Manufacturing and Commercialization to routine patient use.

It is a highly interactive, clearly explained journey through:

  • Technical development – making the molecule and the medicine
  • Preclinical safety – ensuring drugs are safe enough for patient use
  • Early clinical trials – evaluating viability of new drugs
  • Integrating healthcare with digital support and advanced diagnostics
  • Major trials and Regulatory – proving value and seeking license to market
  • Branding and commercialization for launch
  • Manufacturing and supply chain set up
  • Getting new treatments to patients worldwide

Who Should Attend?

  • Scientific and technical staff whose organisations may aspire to build their businesses to later stages of development.
  • Service function staff who need to operate better knowing the 'language' of their internal customers.
  • BioPharma service companies' staff who need to better understand clients' business.
