PHS 793 - Seminar in Pharmaceutical Sciences

This weekly seminar will bring external experts to campus to educate trainees in different areas of biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences, such as biopharmaceutical research; pharmaceutical design, processing, and manufacturing; ethical issues related to drug development; and regulatory processes to ensure efficacy and safety. This course will be designed for PhD trainees. Trainees will select three presentations given throughout the semester and submit five-page papers that include a summary of the topic, the technical specifications and challenges, the opportunities for further development (e.g. commercialization), and the potential ethical and regulatory dilemmas addressed by or arising from the topic. Enrollment will be required each year for all PhD trainees. PHS 793 shares class lectures with PHS 641  or PHS 642  and are held together. May be repeated for credit. (Offered as needed.) 1 credit
