First Master of Medicines Regulatory Affairs (MRA) course 'Regulatory Science' was a success


During two days, students had the opportunity to critically rethink regulatory procedures and see regulatory processes from a different angle. The course was highly rated by the students.

"The course helped us better understand how regulatory science can impact regulatory processes. We were not aware of some of the publications, which were quite relevant to us. It helped us rethink the evaluation of regulatory tools and better understand the gaps of these tools.

On 21 and 28 November 2017, the Copenhagen Center for Regulatory Science (CORS) ran the course "Regulatory Science - Perspectives on Clinical Development" for the first time. 

This course is a part of the curriculum of the Master of Medicines Regulatory Affairs (MRA) at the University of Copenhagen.
Students at MRA program have an international profile and a diverse background related to regulatory affairs.

"Regulatory Science - Perspectives on Clinical Development" introduced the students to regulatory science methods and presented current perspectives on innovations in drug regulation. The course was taught by CORS staff members Christine Erikstrup Hallgreen, Marie Louise De Bruin and Mikkel Lindskov Sachs.
Guest lecturers Jarno Hoekman (Assistant Professor Innovation Studies at the Utrecht University) and Lise Aagaard (Assistant attorney-at-law at Bech-Bruun) provided additional perspectives and hands-on expertise in the regulation of Pharmaceutical products in the EU. 

"It was inspiring to work with a group of highly motivated students, which brought valuable discussions to the table and a variety of different perspectives.

Marie Louise De Bruin (CORS director)

"I am looking forward to using the information I got during the course for my dissertation.  It was a good balance of academic perspectives and industrial case studies.
