Basic Safety Sciences: Pharmacoepidemiology, Clinical Pharmacology, Pharmacogenomics, and Toxicology Studies
This eLearning course reviews the principles of safety sciences including toxicology, clinical pharmacology, pharmacogenomics, and pharmacoepidemiology to enable you to analyze potential safety issues, and to better understand the patient population and its experience with the drug. The course will walk learners through activities and associated competencies needed to advance a drug candidate from an idea in a lab to a treatment ready to be studied in humans. Keep in mind that the application of these sciences to safety and pharmacovigilance change as the environment, regulations, and guidance for drug development continue to evolve.
The module takes an average of 7 hours to complete.
This eLearning module can be purchased individually or as part of the Drug Safety eLearning Bundle (7 modules).
