Drug Regulatory Science

Course content

The course will enable the students to impact discussions on strategic regulatory decisions, and to critically reflect and discuss previously obtained knowledge about guidelines and regulations for clinical development of medicine. 

Regulatory science research will set the foundations for class discussion centred around research methodology and methods, identification of data sources, and interpretation of research results.

The course will centre around 3-4 regulatory science research topics such as, patient involvement in drug development, benefit-risk assessment or accelerated approval pathways. During the course, the students will also be introduced to both qualitative and as quantitative research methods in regulatory science.
