Visits to Facilities/Institutes
Pre-clinical Site Visits
It’s a known fact that preclinical work sets up the base line for any clinical trial process. It is important for the people of the Clinical Research industry to know how, where, when and in what conditions the animal trials are conducted.
Students are taken on a visit to the Institute for toxicology studies where they are able to see a wide range of toxicological studies performed for pharmaceutical, agrochemical, and biotechnological and chemical industries from private and public sectors.
Bio Availability/Bio Equivalence Study Centers
BA Studies are required at the early stages of product development to compare different formulations of the same drug, to find formulation performance of drugs used in clinical trials and demonstrate safety and efficacy, before marketing a drug product. BE Studies are required to establish links between early and late clinical trial formulations, formulations used in clinical trial and stability studies, if different and clinical trial formulations and to-be-marketed drug product.
Clinical Trials Centers
Students are taken for visits to various centers where Clinical Trials are being performed to give them hands-on understanding of clinical trials process, and the roles & responsibilities of various professionals involved in Clinical Trials.
