Courses

BioBasics: Biotech for the Non-Scientist

Learn the basics of biotechnology by skilled and experienced industry scientists. Join other non-science professionals and gain a thorough understanding of the science, technology and terminology which form the foundation of the biotechnology industry.

A one-day class exploring the growing role of diagnostics within the biotech industry. Participants will learn about a range of different diagnostic tests and their indications as well as the basic science behind their development, culminating in a detailed overview of the US reimbursement and approval process for diagnostic devices. The course will also include an introduction to concepts specific to the diagnostic sector, including sensitivity, specificity, false positives and false negatives, as well as a discussion of current issues impacting the sector.

MedDevice Development Immersion

MedDevice Development Immersion is a two-day course examining all aspects of medical device development. Starting with an overview of the different types of devices and the different industry sectors, the course then delves into the changing regulatory environment. This includes a discussion of the different regulatory pathways and a comparison of FDA vs. EU approval processes. The five phases of medical device development – market opportunity, evaluation, design, verification, and manufacturing – are described in detail. Develop an understanding of the entire process required to bring a new medical device to market.

Diagnostics Briefing
