The first International Master on Regulatory Science has been presented on the 1st of March 2014 in Samsun (Turkey), in the framework of the workshop on internationalisation of Higher Education. The Master, with duration of one year, is promoted by the Gianni Benzi Pharmacological Research Foundation in collaboration with the Community of the Mediterranean Universities (CMU), a consortium aimed at promoting scientific cooperation among Mediterranean Universities and the Ondokuz Mayis University (OMU) of Samsun.
It represents an innovative training tool both for the contents and the methodology: its focus is Regulatory Science, a discipline combining regulatory issues related to the development of a biomedical product, to scientific research necessary to ensure the safety and efficacy of these products.
The Gianni Benzi Foundation has always addressed a particular attention to educational activities (both e-learning and high level residential courses) mainly devoted to consolidate knowledge in the field of Regulatory Science and to focus on the innovative actions in the pharmaceutical field in the European scenario. Among the educational activities, the six Foresight Training Courses organised every year by the Foundation provided a relevant contribution in the field, joining together representatives from universities, health-care professionals, regulatory bodies and companies have shared their expertise. What has emerged during the last years is the need to train professionals able to participate in the development, the validation and the marketing of products for human use. This would be reached only with the acquisition of multisectorial and multidisciplinary competencies including scientific, technical, legal, ethical and economic approaches. So that, the principal aim of the Master is to create and update highly experienced professionals who have a full understanding of all these many disciplines.
Further information on the international Master will be soon available on this website.
