327-0811-00L Industrial Research and Development at the Interface of Biomaterials and Drug Delivery
|Semester||Autumn Semester 2018|
|Periodicity||yearly recurring course|
|Course||Does not take place this semester.|
|Language of instruction||English|
|Abstract||This course will provide an up-to-date, comprehensive review of the industrial perspective at the interface of biomaterials and drugs. This covers regulatory, clinical, pre-clinical and manufacturing concepts. The presentations are provided in an effort to maximize the interaction of student and lecturer.|
|Objective||- The student will be able to categorize a drug-biomaterial as a "drug" or a "material" from a regulatory perspective and can summarize general regulatory pathways for material/drug development.|
- The student will be able to summarize the current concepts and challenges for the indstry at the material-drug interface.
- The student will actively develop innovative, industrial concepts at the drug-biomaterial interface.
|Content||This course will provide an up-to-date comprehensive review of the industrial perspective at the interface of biomaterials and drugs. General concepts related to regulatory affairs or such as cost-conscious planning of manufacturing processes will be covered by interactive case-studies and in close interaction between students and lecturers. The course covers the future at the biomaterial - implant interface - as it is seen by the industry today - and will be reviewed by experienced and long-standing faculty from industry with the aim to provide a balanced, insightful perspective. From that, clinical development concepts, regulatory pathways and real-life case studies will be discussed with the students. Finally the students - working in small groups of 4-5 - will outline a development pathway for an industrial project and present it to the course and in presence of all faculty to receive maximum feedback to their approaches. |
The student will become familiar with the major elements required for a successful development and which challenges have to be taken into account to translate an idea into a successful product.
