Module 9: Registration of Biological, Biotechnology and Advanced Therapy Products - 7FHH1147

Registration of Biological, Biotechnology and Advanced Therapy Products

Next course: March/April 2023

Students will evaluate practical aspects of regulatory strategy for biological, biotechnology and advanced therapy products; and explore the regulatory issues likely to arise with these products so they can provide effective advice to avert or resolve such issues.

Overview

This module enables students to have a thorough understanding of the scientific principles underpinning the development of biological/biotechnology products and how their inherent complexities impact on regulation. It also considers the data requirements for such products and allows students to examine the regulatory requirements imposed on biological, biotechnology and advanced therapy products.

The overall training was awesome. I gathered a lot of knowledge in biologicals."
