Pharma III – Pharmaceutical and Biotech Regulation
The course will give the participants knowledge on how to move research towards a commercial setting by connecting and learning from industry players, biotech, and start-ups from the Danish innovation ecosytem. The course will also provide insights on how to secure IP, legals and financing in the early phases. The course will provide insights on critical issues for translating research into either products or start-ups, and on decision processes for progressing research either in industry or start-ups.
The course will include lectures, site visits and discussions with key industry players from both speciality pharma companies (for instance Novo Nordisk, Lundbeck),biotech companies (for instance Genmab, Symphogen, Orphazyme) and start-ups primarily from BioInnovation Institute and COBIS.
