Drug Development Boot Camp

November 14, 2018 @ 8:00 am - November 15, 2018 @ 6:00 pm

  • This event has passed.

This annual Drug Development Boot Camp is an intense, fun, energized program for hands-on learning about the drug development process. The material presented will be reinforced with examples, case studies, puzzles, and workshops.

Participants are totally exposed in a very intensive drug development training program over the two days of the training. The training program places emphasis on Workshops. Participants are given opportunity to get hands-on experience in the key aspects of drug development, including commercial, regulatory affairs, preclinical efficacy, toxicology, CMC, and adaptive clinical trials design development. Participants must have at least 5 years of relevant experience. Early registration is encouraged because participants must complete pre-Boot Camp preparation.

Who should attend?

  • Harvard University investigators
  • Clinical investigators who would like to gain an understanding of drug development
  • CEOs, CFOs, COOs of biotech companies
  • Executives and scientists involved in the drug development process
  • Regulatory affairs professionals, clinical research professionals, senior research scientists, toxicologists
  • Academic scientists working in the area of translational medicine
  • NIH/NCI investigators, researchers, scientists and drug developers
  • Physicians who are new to the pharmaceutical industry

This is not an entry-level program. It is intensive and intended for executive-level individuals who make drug development decisions on a daily basis. The program is intended to help you avoid:

  • Spending many years and huge sums of money developing a drug the market does not want and will not pay for
  • Making costly mistakes throughout the development process
  • Clinical hold situations which are extremely costly
  • An inability to raise funds or to find an appropriate exit.
