Pharmaceutical Quality by Design
This course is based on the application of product and process sciences, from early-to-late stages of the product development cycle, to provide accelerated regulatory submission pathways for new drug applications; this is the 1st MSc dedicated to the new QbD approach to pharmaceutical process and product development and it seeks to instil quality into the product while it is being developed and manufactured rather than waiting for post-production testing; our students benefit from investment in new, dedicated good manufacturing practice laboratories, links to the pharmaceutical industry and involvement of industrial practitioners in our course design and delivery.
