Drug development focuses on the process of making a candidate drug into a medicine before it can be introduced to the pharmaceutical market

Drug development is a central topic that covers how pharmaceutical drugs are tested for activity and toxicity, formulated, produced, and adheres to applicable national and international regulations. Additionally, the product must be easy to use for the consumer (compliance).

By necessity, postgraduate education covers many different areas – such as clinical trials, formulation, production, and regulations as well as the procedures involved in the medicines approval process.

An inter-disciplinary subject

As a result of the many complicated aspects in this process, drug development is an immensely inter-disciplinary subject where knowledge in the fields of chemistry, biology, pharmacology, and medicine is necessary.

At the same time, the user needs to be taken into account, as well as their desire and ability to use the product appropriately in order to achieve successful treatment.

The courses and education in this field are for candidates who are not fully fledged pharmacists, or for those who need refresher courses on how to ensure high quality production and approval.
