SwedenBIO – Drug development course

Drug development projects are often initiated by identifying a lack of treatment for a disease. The project usually has a deep knowledge of the disease and the biological mechanism. However, developing a medicine for the disease requires a broad knowledge of many different areas. This three-day course provides an insight into all the elements that should be addressed to effectively bring a pharmaceutical project to the finish line.

Target group

The course is aimed at those who work in drug development (e.g. in small and medium-sized enterprises), and feel that they want a comprehensive view of the complex development chain. During the course you will gain insight into how to work in the different stages of development, what to consider and what pitfalls there are along the way. To get the most out of the course, it is an advantage to have a university degree in science.


All speakers have experience in the drug development chain, and most have worked with or in small companies. The course may be given in English if necessary.

Time and place

The course takes place at Apotekarsocieteten, Wallingatan 26 A in Stockholm, 14 – 16 March 2016. The lectures on the first day of the course start at 09.00. The last day ends at 17.00.

The participation fee for the meeting is 5000 SEK excluding VAT. If you work for a company that is a member of SwedenBIO, please state SwedenBIO in your application.
