This Specialization will equip you with the knowledge of clinical trials and the regulatory assessments, which medicine must undergo before being released to the patients. To stay competitive in the field of pharmacology, universities and organizations need qualified clinical trials experts with knowledge and understanding of clinical pharmacology and therapeutics who use cutting-edge research methods. This 16-week Specialization is designed to equip you with the knowledge you need to apply in clinical trials and pharmacology research. It will train you to perform research in an international research environment.
Through the virtual internship programme, you’ll gain the essential knowledge and skills required to participate in drug development research and pharmacology. This Specialization aims to provide knowledge of pharmaceutical sciences and advances in clinical pharmacology and therapeutics.
The online distance-learning delivery of the course will provide opportunities to receive expertise from the Cambridge Centre for Innovation and Development (CamCID) researchers, material from our partners, and guest lectures. This specialization includes two Professional Certificates (PCerts), 4 -week Researchers Training Programme, and a virtual internship.
This Professional Certificate (PCert) course will provide you the basic knowledge of different stages of the drug development process, including how drugs are discovered, tested, and turned into suitable medicine.
This Professional Certificate (PCert) course will provide you with the knowledge and understanding of key laboratory methods like ELISA, flow cytometry, and fluorescence microscopes.
Further details are mentioned on PCert - Laboratory Skills in Bioscience page.
This unique 4-week online training programme is designed to equip you with the knowledge you need to succeed in your career as a researcher.
This 4 weeks of virtual training will provide you a learning opportunity from researchers at CamCID. It will provide you research opportunities and mentorship with weekly research-based tasks and guidance during the tasks.
