This course will introduce students to various therapeutic areas and enable them to develop an understanding of the molecular basis of disease, how this knowledge is used to develop new therapies and how to apply their learnings from previous courses to develop clinical, regulatory and reimbursement strategies to ensure a new molecule has an optimal chance of making it onto the market. The core therapeutics areas covered will include cardiovascular, endocrinology, neurology and infectious diseases.  Other areas will be covered briefly and students may choose to study a specific therapeutic area of their choosing for their main assignment to allow for individual interests.
