Drug Development Immersion is an interactive course that explores the regulatory, commercial, and scientific factors needed to bring a drug successfully to market. The discussion features both small-molecule drugs and biologics. Our instructors illustrate the corporate decision-making process with personal accounts, giving participants unique strategic development insights. Learn from an industry expert what it takes to get a molecule from the bench into the marketplace. 

Drug Development Immersion was developed for the non-science professional who works within or services the biopharma industry and needs to become familiar with the preclinical and clinical development process.


  1. Fluency in essential terminology and acronyms used in clinical development.
  2. An in-depth look at the FDA and EMA regulatory process and sponsor interactions.
  3. Criteria for preclinical studies to support first-in-human clinical trials.
  4. Rationale, special considerations, and study design for both traditional and non-traditional
    clinical trial phases.
  5. Understanding of the launch process, life cycle management, and post-approval drug safety
