"Scientists want to pursue science for knowledge sake... Not advancing our commercial objectives... Fall in love with research program... Unaware of experimental critical path.... Results don t affect our commercial path... Wasted time from non communication... No team orientation; not communicating things that rest of team should know... Not calling for help... People in leadership positions without skills or training..." (Quotes from VPs, Research and Development of big and small life sciences companies)
And it's not just post-docs and other life scientists who need this training. Doug spoke to the 500 members of the IT department of a leading biotech firm. At least half of them had never seen a basic slide on the stages of drug development... How can they possibly understand the basic business of the firm?
Doug created a three-part lecture series for the Stanford Center for Professional Development on the Fundamentals of Drug Development. The Fundamentals of Drug Development is a three-part online lecture series consisting of videotaped presentation and slides. This four-hour 'courselet' is a comprehensive introduction to the processes, regulation, and financing of drug development. The series is targeted to life sciences, computer sciences, and management professionals interested in the complex world of big pharmaceutical companies and small biotech firms.
Unfortunately, these courses are no longer available to the public. But they can be delivered as highly-interactive, customized, case-based courses at your site. Let Doug create a custom employee orientation or education plan for your life sciences business. Please email Doug Kalish for details.
