This course applies the translational scientific knowledge acquired in previous courses to create a comprehensive plan to develop a new biomedical product. Students are divided into cross-functional teams and assigned a drug class and indication to develop, focusing on a different translational science concept each week. Each team is guided/mentored by a pharmaceutical industry veteran.
Scenarios where this is fundamental:
New academic discovery – should it be carried into translational activities?
New mechanism of action, pathway, molecular target, cell type, drug, metabolite, protein, etc.
Perform a proof-of-concept trial in patients with a "prototype" biomedical product in an academic environment. Publish and let the biomedical industry discover/design a bona fide biomedical product.
Start up a pharmaceutical, biotechnology, or medical technology company based on a new academic discovery
Promote a new project at a pharmaceutical, biotechnology, or medical technology company
Perform a due diligence exercise at a pharmaceutical, biotechnology, or medical technology company for in-licensing a biomedical product
As background while involved in any role in biomedical product discovery/design & development in a pharmaceutical, biotechnology, or medical technology company
As background while involved in clinical development in academia/research institutions
As background for independent professional occupation
Intellectual property lawyer, venture capital evaluator, patent agent, physician, pharmacist, therapist, medical writer, etc.
