Bridging Preclinical and Clinical Development
About this course
Reasons to attend
Bridging Preclinical to Clinical Development is a must-attend course for anyone who wants to advance their career in drug development. This comprehensive course provides you with a deep understanding of the key concepts, tools, and techniques required to bridge preclinical research to clinical development. You'll learn about essential elements such as pre-clinical toxicology, CMC perspective for clinical development, manufacturing, clinical study design, and regulatory compliance, equipping you with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to succeed. Our expert trainers bring real-world experience to the table, offering practical examples and insights that will help you apply the knowledge gained in the course. There is even a trainer from the Belgian Regulatory Authority that will join the training.
Note: This course is not made for professionals working in medical device development but for drug development.

The safety of the subject in any clinical trial is of paramount consideration. First in Human (FIH) studies are special in this case as no data is available on how the investigational product will react in the human body. Preclinical data needs to be adequate to allow translation into a clinical study complying with all medical, scientific, ethical, and regulatory aspects.
Historical cases have shown that bridging preclinical and clinical has not always been adequate. The gap needs to be understood first and then strategies need to be developed to enable a smooth translation of the preclinical data of “research in animals” to the clinical research with First in Human studies.
This course highlights the various considerations to be considered while moving from preclinical research to clinical development in humans. It enables a bidirectional transfer of knowledge and research, making the transition into clinical research smooth and effective.
The first part of the course will be spent describing the preclinical perspective (toxicology and manufacturing) including a workshop.
The second part will focus on the clinical side of development, including First in Human study design, submission to authorities, the regulator’s perspective, and maintaining quality throughout the process. You will be able to put your newly gained knowledge immediately into practice as the trainers will guide you to take a new compound through the entire process.

Pre-clinical and early phase are some of the areas that I have the least experience in. This course is very complete and multi-functional and touches upon all aspects involved in moving to FIH. It has been the most interesting course that I have attended in years. Especially the first day was very interesting.
Nice interaction with the trainers. They were really experts in the topic they were discussing. I would recommend this training to people who have a minimal or no experience in drug development to attend as it was a very nice high level overview and gave a good impression of what aspects are needed.
Trainers have experience in the field and participants have already good background to share concerns, discuss, ask the relevant questions.
Workshop to apply skills learned was very good, Interaction with regulatory and industry participants.
I learned the concept regarding how to set the starting and miximum doses and how to design the dose escalation. The CMC and preclinical requirement, the design of FIH protocol, determination the dose range for FIH clinical trials.
It is a good overview on the preclinical study required to enter phase I. Comprehensive overview on CMC and toxicology studies.
