About this Course

Life science industries are very complex and require the management of large portfolios and programs where best project management practice is essential to successful product completion and subsequent enduring market leadership. The umbrella of programs required to feed the pipeline of therapeutic candidates and their subsequent development into commercial products are much diversified and range from exploratory research, determination of novel biological pathways, lead discovery and development, preclinical studies, clinical trials, regulatory compliance and filings, manufacturing, and sales and marketing.

In this course, we'll address most major components and phases of drug, biopharmaceutical and medical device product development and cover in detail the various project management methodologies and core competencies associated with each of the essential elements of the product development cycle. You'll be invited to apply the principles learned in class to your real-life environment via custom-designed projects.
