About this event

Drug Development is a complicated process - from initial conception to clinical trials, regulatory compliance, and acquisition or commercialization, the journey from the lab desk to the patient is long and difficult to navigate.

We are delighted to invite Dr Claire Thompson to give this interactive workshop which walks through the drug development process, examining some of the decisions and risks which must be taken along the way.

This workshop is open to Cambridge early career researchers looking to gain more insight in to the drug development process . The workshop is free to attend and will be run virtually.

Workshop numbers will be limited to 25 to allow for more 1:1 attention. Places are available on a first come first served basis until capacity is reached and we will run a waitlist in case of any cancellations. Those on the waitlist will be prioritised for subsequent workshops.

Any queries can be directed to Dr Padraig Mulcahy at the CATS team on padraig.mulcahy@admin.cam.ac.uk
