3 day course in Drug Development (Previous Kurs i läkemedelsutveckling)

17 October, 2017 @ 08:00 - 19 October, 2017 @ 17:00

Drug development projects are often initiated by identifying treatment for a disease. The project usually contains a deep knowledge of the disease and the biological mechanism. However, in order to develop a drug for the disease, a broad knowledge of many different areas is required. This three-day course provides insights into all the parts that should be addressed to effectively target a drug project. For the first time the course will not only be offered as a traditional course but also as a distance course. Those who choose to attend online will have access to all streamed lectures for 1 month. Traditional participant also have the opportunity to add lectures online.

The course is organized in cooperation with SwedenBIO.

Who should attend
The course is aimed for those involved in drug development (eg in small and medium-sized companies), and needs a comprehensive picture of the complex development chain. During the course you will get insight into how to work in the different stages of development, what to think about and what pitfalls there are on the road. To get the most exchange of the course, it is an advantage to have a natural science background.
