Clinical Safety and Pharmacovigilance Certificate courses are formatted to help students gain specialized knowledge of the most recent developments in clinical research, drug development, and pharmacovigilance. One of the biggest developments and an ongoing topic of interest in clinical research is medical devices. As technology advances, new medical devices are introduced and must undergo the approval process for use in the healthcare industry. Our courses outline both Canadian healthcare as well as the global healthcare system, giving students an understanding of the relationship between international guidelines and standard operating procedures in regards to medical devices. With extensive hands-on training at.. READ MORE »
Every year, hundreds of clinical trials are conducted in Canada to test new drugs for approved use on humans. Clinical trials serve as an evidentiary basis for determining whether medicines are safe and effective. Monitoring patient safety during clinical trials is a critical practice throughout the whole drug development process. With the high costs of conducting clinical trials, the pharmaceutical industry can benefit from clear safety evaluations that can lead to better patient protection and save development costs. Clinical safety is a collaborative concern that involves sponsors, sites, researchers, and any personnel in the clinical trial phases. As the industry.. READ MORE »
The product development lifecycle of drugs is longer than many people think. New therapeutic products, which are drugs or biologics, undergo a complex process that takes approximately 10 to 12 years from start to finish. When you work in clinical research, you will play a role in the industry that brings new drugs and medical devices to market. There are many stages to this process, all of which are important. Without clinical research, this process wouldn’t be complete. Read on to learn more about what’s involved in a drug lifecycle, with a focus on why clinical research is an integral.. READ MORE »
As cancer treatment research works towards drugs that have anti-aging properties, this may help treat or prevent the spread of growths. Since poorly aging cells can enable the development of the disease, this could act as an effective treatment. The process of aging in cells is called senescence. Senescence is normal and is the body’s way of getting rid of older, damaged matter. However, when the process is not taking place normally, it is thought that this can allow tumors to grow. Drugs that eliminate poorly aging cells are called senolytics. Read on for how scientists have discovered a pre-existing.. READ MORE »
