Is Automation the Future of Pharmacovigilance? An In-Depth Look for Students in Pharmaceutical Training

Pharmacovigilance (or PV) is a major part of drug safety, dealing with the detection, assessment, and monitoring of drug effects on the human body. With updated regulations and technological advancements, the pharmaceutical industry is facing pressure to automate PV systems—optimizing spending costs while also improving risk management.  By doing so, PV systems would be better suited to create personalized medicine. Automation would also help promote transparent data sharing between patients and healthcare providers as well as regulatory agencies. In this way, those pursuing pharmaceutical studies can expect automation to significantly change the pharmaceutical industry.  Here’s a closer look at how.. READ MORE »

4 Reasons to Consider a Career in Clinical Research

As long as people continue to desire personalized treatment options when they get sick, there will be a need for clinical research professionals. Put simply, clinical research involves conducting trials to ensure the safety and effectiveness of drugs before public distribution, as well as ensuring regulatory compliance is maintained at all times. These trials and studies are what researchers rely on to make sure drug treatments can officially be brought to market. Having a career in this field allows you to work directly in developing treatments that help others with their health issues. Anyone hoping for a career in healthcare.. READ MORE »

Why the Maillard Reaction Matters: An Overview for Students in Food Technology Training

Many people know what it looks like when food is browning when they cook it, but likely do not know the scientific name of the process. The “Maillard reaction” is the chemical reaction that happens when food, such as meat, is being cooked and the colour changes. The Maillard reaction is also the process where flavour becomes evident, and occurs most frequently when food is being cooked at a high temperature. Without the reaction happening at the correct level of heat, there will be significantly less flavour present in the food being cooked. Here’s what food technology students should know.. READ MORE »

What Students in Nutrition and Health Training Should Know About a Gluten-Free Diet

The term “gluten-free” has been a buzzword for some time now in association with food and dieting. Although this type of diet is typically meant for people who cannot eat gluten, such as those with gluten ataxia or celiac disease, it’s a diet that has been followed by numerous people without either of these conditions.  Some believe that gluten-free dieting provides significant health benefits even if they do not have a condition making it difficult to consume gluten. However, there is minimal scientific evidence to support these claims. As such, it’s important for a nutrition and health professional to understand.. READ MORE »

How Biosynthetic Cannabis Can Change the Future of Cannabis Industry Careers

The future of the cannabis industry might no longer be simply about growing crops. Rather, biosynthesis is being viewed as a potential solution for more sustainable cannabis cultivation. In this context, biosynthesis is the process where strains of yeast are used to generate cannabinoids. While using living cells such as yeast to create molecules, biosynthesis allows for the creation of cannabinoids in ways that are not only more environmentally sustainable, but also safer, less expensive, and of a higher quality. As a result, no actual cannabis plants need to be grown or cultivated in order to produce the desired cannabinoids… READ MORE »

Interested in Clinical Research Training? Here are 5 Tips for Statistical Analysis

Statistical analysis is a critical component in an evidence-based clinical research process. Statistical analysis is the process of collecting and analyzing data gathered to determine trends and patterns. Using statistical analysis allows researchers to establish whether the data they’ve obtained supports their research question. When approaching a clinical research study, it’s important to start the process with a statistical analysis plan (SAP), choosing the statistical methods which are appropriate for the study at hand.  Despite its importance, developing a statistical analysis plan for clinical research can be a complicated task, especially if your research framework isn’t totally air tight. If.. READ MORE »
