The Office of Postdoctoral Studies is offering a Career Exploration Event to expose postdoctoral trainees to the broad range of careers open to them after their training period. This month’s event is “Careers in Drug Development: Contract Research Organizations”,everyone is welcome to attend this event.
Contract Research Organizations (CROs) play a critical role in the drug development pipeline. On behalf of their clients, CROs explore the initial feasibility and safety of new compounds, engage in clinical trials research, and examine the safety and efficacy of existing drugs used for different illnesses. Covance provides comprehensive clinical laboratory and end-to-end drug development services to clients in over 60 countries. Panelists from this CRO will discuss: what motivated them to work in this area, how their work differs from academic research, and what it takes to secure a position and succeed in this exciting field.
