Over the last 20 years, many factors have combined to change the operating environment of the international pharmaceutical industry. There has been a vast increase in the range and sophistication of functions encompassed by the drug development process and also, of course, in the demands made upon the professionals involved. In response to this increase in specialisation and sophistication, the industry has become progressively more demanding and selective in the professionals it recruits. The objective of this book is to give an overview of the different opportunities in drug discovery and development and the scientific, medical or other specialist training needed to accomplish them. With contributions from medical directors, clinical researchers, pharmacists, drug safety experts, data managers, statisticians, pharmaceutical industry consultants and contractors, regulatory affairs managers, information specialists, lawyers, drug regulators and leading academics, this book will be of great value and interest to professionals entering or moving jobs within the pharmaceutical industry and will also provide an informative and enlightening read for anyone interested in how the drug industry operates.
