Master the science behind pharmaceutical drug making. Whether you're expanding your career knowledge or an aspiring pharmaceutical scientist, you've come to the right place.
This course will give you a deep understanding of the science behind how drugs designed, manufactured, tested, how they work, and testing requirements surrounding patient safety.
While most science courses focus on simply what the theories are, I teach through applicable, real-life examples designed to show you why these theories work and how they can be applied in your very own daily lives. I will not teach you to memorize formulas, theories, or to regurgitate facts and drug names. I will teach you how to THINK like a pharmaceutical scientist.
By the end of the course, you'll be able to:
Describe what are drugs, how they are made, and how they work in the body.
Explain what makes up a drug and what routes of administration are there.
Understand the science behind drug design and the theories behind solution, powder, granules, and dispersion systems.
Discussion theories such as dissolution, particle size, shape, density, porosity, wettability, flowability and many more...
Appreciate basics of microbiology, sterilization techniques, pasteurization, and vaccines.
Understand why you take most drugs multiple times a day and what you should do when you miss a dose.
Have a first look at the drug manufacturing process and understand Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).
