I-HoP:Drug Development in the Pharmaceutical Industry(9/4)

Transferable Skills Seminar – Drug Development in the Pharmaceutical Industry: The Career Path, Landscape and Future

This transferable skills seminar is targeted international researchers (DC, PD and MC).
Seminar will be conducted in English.

■ Outline
The landscape of drug development in the pharmaceutical industry changes in a short timeframe. Once the seeds show promising potential in the venture company or startup companies, these seeds will be bought by large pharmaceutical companies which have abundant resources to run clinical trials. Running clinical trials is extremely expensive and the average cost exceeds billion dollars. Therefore, any pharmaceutical companies make efforts to minimize the cost, maximize efficiencies toward early approval of the drug. Many animal studies and pharmacology studies are often outsourced to the contract research organizations (CROs) and academic institutions. Depending on the expertise, the career path crosses between the sponsor and CROs. It is important for your career planning to understand the structure and functions of the matrix team of the pharmaceutical companies and identify where your strength contributes most.
