Four Concentration Tracks
Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing Science
Many opportunities are available for developmental scientists, engineers, and managers who understand bioprocess development, regulatory affairs, and targeted formulation as well as scientific computing, database and information management, and automation skills. These new professionals will use their knowledge throughout biopharmaceutical product and process design, development, and eventual manufacturing and distribution of the atypical pharmaceuticals and novel biomedical combination products. Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing Science concentration details.
It is widely believed that the adoption and use of information technology is critical to companies working to satisfy the demands of the drug-development operating environment. "E-clinical" science, engineering, and technologies can reduce data collection and management inefficiencies, improve development planning and management, and accelerate the filing of drugs with regulatory agencies. E-Clinical Science concentration details.
Pharmaceutical Development Science
Scientists and engineers with a thorough "state-of-the-science" knowledge of regulatory requirements, drug delivery challenges and technologies, critical product attributes, and process development, as well as new skills in scientific computing and automation engineering will be able to capitalize on dramatic advances in biomedical research and unprecedented opportunities to address major unmet medical needs. Pharmaceutical Development Science concentration details.
Accelerating discoveries in molecular biology and genetics are energizing the development of new and improved pharmaceutical processes, products, and therapeutic agents. As companies work to turn the process of developing new medicines from an art to a well-understood science, there is also a growing opportunity for individuals with regulatory science expertise.
