Miguel Lopes, Head of New Concepts (S&A), TISSIUM

Despite being on-line it has been very interactive. The presenter is an expert on the matter and explains in a very clear and concise way.

Alba Marcé, Regulatory Affairs Specialist, Grifols, S.A.

I like the fact that (the speaker) took the time to answer questions

Jos Wesselman, Sr. Manager Development, Basic Pharma Technologies B.V.

I learned a lot and got some great insights into the process of design and development. It is an intense course with a lot of ground covered.

Damien Tackney, Reg Affairs, Ovelle Ltd

I was hoping for further improvement of my understanding of the matter of inhalational drugs, especially MDI, and this expectation was fully met. The speakers had superb knowledge of the subject, vast experience and a great sense of humour.

Robin Boehm, Team Leader Regulatory Submissions - New Products, STADA Arzneimittel AG

Richard was very knowledgeable, engaging and approachable. He was clearly passionate about his subject, which was infectious. I was very happy with this course and would gladly recommend it to others.

Charlie Irving, Senior Design Engineer, Renishaw Neuro Solutions Ltd

A great webinar on human factors. Great presenter with a lot of knowledge on the subject!

Pontus Adler, Research Scientist, Camurus AB

The content, presentation and speaker have been very good. The online version of the course has also work well. The only "problem" with the online version of the course is that we do not have direct interaction with other participants. So, at some point it would help to connect everybody with camera to share opinion or experiences.

Laura Lopez Vicente, R&D Manager, Instituto Grifols S.A.

Great overall. All topics of design control were covered well and I think everyone left with a better understanding than when they arrived. I have definitely applied some of the lessons we learned to my current role.

Emma Fairhall, R&D Manager, Leica Biosystems

I am very satisfied with the course. I learnt a lot and the subject of HFE studies is much clearer to me. We were able to have very good discussions with the speaker who seemed to be very knowledgeable.

Nina Bladh, Director CMC Regulatory Affairs, Camurus AB
