Principles of Drug Development: Course Description

Testing drugs before they become available to the general public, or those with a specific disease, is an important aspect of pharmaceutical development. This OpenCourseWare from Johns Hopkins University's School of Public Health in Baltimore, Maryland, provides guidelines for drug testing within FDA rules and regulations. Students learn how to plan a drug trial, determine a drug's effectiveness and monitor a drug's effects on an individual. The course covers the process of proving a drug's effectiveness so that the drug can be developed further and distributed to sick patients. Johns Hopkins University professor Charles Flexner, M.D., teaches this not-for-credit course centering on drug development and testing issues and regulations in the United States.

This OpenCourseWare provides free downloads, notes and lectures online. If you are interested in taking this course, visit the principles of drug development course page.
