This course represents an excellent opportunity for staff who are new to the drug discovery industry, those in non-scientific roles or beginning careers as a scientist to gain or develop an in depth knowledge of the sector.


Our course aims are to:

  • Explain how the biopharmaceutical industry operates at the technical and commercial levels
  • Highlight areas in the industry of relevance to organisations that commercialise R&D
  • Help non-technical staff to understand some of the terminology and jargon used in the industry
  • Also help those with an existing scientific background familiarise themselves again with the industry processes


During this half-day course the structure and commercial environment of the biopharmaceutical industry including key technical aspects of the drug development process will be covered.


This is a course for everyone, such as:

Non-scientists: to help build overarching knowledge of this sector help improve confidence for staff in handling future projects.

Scientists: the overview of the industry structure and processes covered in the course will still be useful for scientists and engineers who wish to familiarise themselves with the industry.
