Drug Development Course 2018 (Drug Development Course 2018)
Owner/Developer: European Society for Animal Cell Technology (ESACT)
ESACT offers an introductory course to drug development, providing an overview of the field, offering basic aspects and pharmaceutical application. It will be of interest for those starting research or development activity in drug development, both from academia and companies (lab managers, scientists, Post-Docs, PhD students and engineers). It is also of interest for those wishing an up-date of the state-of-the-art of drug development in a short course.
The course is planned in an intensive three-day schedule with a number of participants limited to 30 in order to facilitate the interaction among them and with the lecturers. Lecturers will stay for the entire course duration. A limited number of grants, covering the course fee (not travel cost), are provided by ESACT. Applicants to the grants should indicate it in the course application, together with a motivation statement. Priority will be given to young PhD students from academia.
