Biologics Module

We are excited to be beginning work on a new Biologics module which we hope will be available sometime in 2014. We are busy establishing links with experts in the field and Walkiria recently attended a meeting in Cambridge ‘Streamlining Biopharmaceutical Development – Use of Design of Experiments’ which provided some useful contacts. We will also be attending the ‘Making QbD happen for biopharmaceuticals – the practice not the theory’ workshop in London in December. If you would like to get involved in this exciting development, please get in touch.

Science Industry Partnership

We are actively pursuing the opportunity to increase our involvement in work-based training through the initiatives being progressed as part of the government sponsored Science Industry partnership. The SIP is being led by GSK and co ordinated by Cogent. The proposed training pathways include an Industry Masters in Formulation Science (led by iFormulate) and also the Framework for Growth aimed at providing training to SMEs. We are in active discussions with Cogent, APS and iFormulate to explore ways in which our distance learning platform might support the various initiatives.

Bite sized QbD study at DMU

Our distance learning course is highly flexible to enable you to study as little or as much as you would like to suit your individual needs. Individual modules can be studied in isolation without assessment, allowing you to fulfil your individual learning objectives and development needs.

Students wishing to gain a formal qualification will need to complete the required modules and assessments in order to gain University credits leading to a formal qualification (PG Cert, PG Dip or full MSc).
