The Drug Development Process from Concept to Market 2021 

The Drug Development Process from Concept to Market 2021

This course is designed to cater for employees of pharmaceutical companies who would like an understanding of the drug development and regulatory approval process. The course starts by considering the global pharmaceutical market, important therapeutic areas and the roles of different pharmaceutical professionals in the development process, as well as a definition of drugs and medical devices. The drug development process, from discovery to post-marketing surveillance, is then explained. Topics include the identification of drug targets, synthesis of chemical drugs and the development of biologics, pharmacokinetics and toxicity screening, pre-clinical development, clinical studies, regulatory submissions, managing post-approval change, pharmacovigilance and an overview of regulations governing drug manufacture and distribution.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this course, you will understand:

  • The size of the global pharmaceutical market and the key therapeutic areas being addressed by innovator companies
  • The roles of different pharmaceutical professionals
  • Typical costs and timelines associated with drug development
  • How new drugs are developed against targets in the human body
  • Reasons why drugs fail during development
  • Factors affecting oral bioavailability
  • How drugs are screened for toxicity
  • The potential influence of polymorphism, salt form and isomerism on efficacy and safety
  • How formulation can affect drug performance
  • How the safety and efficacy of drug products are ensured during QC release testing
  • The information obtained at each stage of clinical research
  • The structure of regulatory submissions
  • How post-approval changes to drug products are managed
  • How the manufacture and distribution of marketed drug products are controlled

Who will Benefit:

  • Non-scientific employees of pharmaceutical companies who would like to understand how drugs are developed (e.g. IT, human resources, engineering and administrative staff)
  • Recently-appointed scientific staff with no previous experience of the pharmaceutical industry
  • Any pharmaceutical employee wishing to improve their knowledge of drug development
