(2 Years - Semester)
 

The course on Clinical Research and Experimental Medicine deals with the clinical trial regulations, Good Clinical Practice guidelines, study designs and research methodology involved in bringing a potential drug from the laboratory to market. The global clinical research market is growing fast with the annual growth rate over 20% and there is a need to have trained man power to handle clinical trials in ethical and scientific manner. The M.Sc. program is aimed to train students from basic and medical sciences in clinical and pre-clinical research in order to prepare the candidate for carrying out ethical research with scientific merit and also to protect the rights, safety and wellbeing of patients participating in clinical trials.

The curriculum of the course provides training in preclinical evaluation of drugs used in different therapeutic areas such as cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, central nervous system and malignant disorders. The students are exposed to interdisciplinary pre-clinical research in the areas of nanotechnology that includes nano-drugs and nano-drug delivery systems and biotechnology that includes drug toxicity in tissue cultures, drug effects in cellular and metabolic processes etc. The clinical departments of the Chettinad hospital acquaint the students with clinical features, laboratory investigations and drugs used in common clinical conditions in India.

This program covers wide range of subjects in clinical trial guidelines such as ICH Guidelines, Code of Federal Regulations, IPR and IP Laws, GMP & ISO and toxicology studies.
