The level of detail and complexity was just right and I have learnt a lot and would certainly recommend this course to others. I thoroughly enjoyed the course.

Melanie Pires, Pharmaceutical Assessor, Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA)

Every speaker brought in their own experience and passion that should offer something for attendants from a variety of backgrounds and levels of detail, and certainly did for mine...Excellent content for somebody lacking a bio or chemistry background providing a clear and useful understanding of the building blocks that make up the biotech industry.

Patrick Helm, Sr. Associate Contract Management, Genmab B.V.

Excellent course with expert speakers. It is highly recommended to people who already have a background on life sciences.

Mary Malamatari, Assessor, Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA)

The content was excellent and all presenters were clearly SMEs, who managed to explain much of the complex content in an understandable way.

Sunil Singh, Director, Regulink Ltd

Excellent. Really enjoyed and learned a lot.

Anthony Barker, Director - Regulatory CMC, Home Address

I gained much more understanding than what I had intended to. The trainer also involved everybody in the course and did not make it boring. The topics of non-clinical, clinical, strategy as well as market entry/IP etc were covered briefly too. So that was an added advantage.
