Stepping Stones on Our Regulatory Career Paths

Posted 01 June 2011

About 25 years ago, regulatory was often a phase at the end of a pharmaceutical scientist's career and considered a bureaucratic rather than a strategic part of drug development. Much has changed since then. Quite a number of young scientists interested in a career in the pharmaceutical industry add a degree in regulatory to their scientific credentials. Many universities and regulatory organizations around the world offer programs to jump-start or enhance a career in the profession. Regulatory is now recognized as a strategic part of the drug development process and an equal partner to the other line functions that form a development team.
