About this Program

In this three-course certificate program, we’ll immerse ourselves in the science and techniques behind drug development across all phases of translational pharmaceutics. You’ll study the principles of pharmacokinetics used to test the effectiveness of a drug in laboratory settings, and learn about navigating the steps from Investigational New Drug (IND) application to product launch. We’ll also investigate how to optimize drug formulation, scale up manufacturing processes and produce biologics and designer drugs. Gain a thorough knowledge of the stages involved in taking a pharmaceutical agent through the complex development process. 


Professionals who work in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and related fields.
