Specialize in the field of Drug Development and work to improve treatments for diseases for which there is no cure"

With the development of this Postgraduate Certificate in Drug Research and Development in Nursing, students will delve into the study of preclinical drug 
research, that is, from the time a molecule with therapeutic activity is discovered until it is marketed. 

Within the field of research, professionals must also have statistical notions that allow them to carry out the Clinical Trials as accurately as possible. The use of statistics in Clinical Trials allows the researcher to reach reasonable and accurate conclusions from the data collected, and to sound out decisions when certainties are scarce. 

In addition, a very important part of the Drug Research and Development process is to know how to communicate the new discoveries, which will allow further research in this field and promote its use in a generalized way, achieving the consequent benefit in patients.

Another point in favor of this program is that it is offered totally online, free of rigid schedules and the need to attend a physical center. In this way, it will be the students themselves who decide from where to study and at what time, eliminating any physical barrier. In this way, the students only need to have a computer or mobile device with an internet connection to access all the material available on the virtual campus.
