Drug Development Process


The development of new drugs is a highly complex, lengthy and expensive process. In this course, you examine this process---from discovery to market and beyond---and see what makes the biopharmaceutical industry unique. Infused with real-world examples, lectures will address drug discovery; preclinical characterization of new drug entities; the phases and purposes of both pharmacological and clinical development; regulatory filings, compliance and oversight; FDA jurisdiction; and strategic issues in drug development.
