Module overview

The aim of this module is to provide third year students with an introduction to commercialization of biosciences. The current focus is on the process of drug discovery, the subsequent management of clinical trials and marketing of commercial drug products. The main topics will include the scientific rationale and justification of novel targets and the associated assay development and experimental design to show efficacy of such a target. In addition, the module will provide further guidance and information on pharmacokinetics, regulatory affairs, clinical trial design, intellectual property and business planning to make a chosen target commercially viable. At the end of the module student will be able to address the following questions: What makes a good drug and how to produce, protect and get a drug to the market?
