Specialising in the Drug Discovery Industry
The discovery and development of new medicines is a highly technical process with its own specialised jargon that can prove challenging to translators without a technical background. The two webinars prepared by Dr Edward Zanders cover the drug discovery process from target identification to marketed medicine while highlighting the terminology used from the early discovery process through to clinical development. There is also a brief review of the commercial organisation of the drug discovery industry including industry trends, such as the introduction of biopharmaceuticals into the marketplace. Both sessions include a question and answer session to discuss specific issues of terminology raised by the audience.
Part 1: Technical background to drug development from laboratory to first studies in humans.
Part 2: Clinical trials and drug regulation. The organisation of the pharmaceutical industry.
