Social Factors in Drug Development

Once a drug has been discovered, there are many factors that influence whether it is marketed. This course will explore the societal issues that affect pharmaceutical and biotech companies as they develop new compounds. After an introduction to the Canadian regulatory process, students will discuss topics such as laboratory animal welfare, ethics in clinical research, drug reimbursement and other pressures drug companies face to provide a drug or take it off the market.
