Clinical Development

The Clinical Development program at Paul Janssen Futurelab Leiden provides “learning-by-doing” training to ambitious postgraduate biomedical researchers who wish to further their career and increase their knowledge on the development of novel medical interventions. The program focuses on several important aspects associated with the development medicinal products, medical devices, and medical nutrition products. The Clinical Development program consists of three sequential courses:

Clinical Development On-campus

During this intensive 4-day Futurelab course, you will dive head first into a myriad of advanced teaching cases based on real-world examples. Working in small groups with fellow participants, you will work on various assignments that are based on actual projects in which novel medical interventions were developed. This on-campus Futurelab course takes place in the beautiful Dutch city of Leiden, which is only a 20-minute train ride from downtown Amsterdam and Schiphol Airport.

Preparation prior to the start of the course

You will need to study the learning materials supplied to you; this should take approximately 20-30 hours. Note that the course itself is quite demanding; therefore, you are expected to be familiar with the materials before the course begins.

Learning outcomes

Upon completing this course, you will be able to process large amounts of information obtained from both preclinical and clinical studies, and you will be able to identify the key issues to be addressed during the development of various products. You will also have a broad understanding of the challenges and dynamics associated with the development of a novel medical intervention. Finally, you will have learned how to work closely within a small, multidisciplinary group setting.

The number of spaces is limited. Therefore, applicants will be selected based on their background and experience, motivation letter, CV, and publication record. Note that participants must first successfully complete the online course and must have obtained a Good Clinical Practice certificate (or equivalent) within four years of applying for this course.
