Academia meets Industry

Who we are

In 2016 Prof. A. Bechthold from the University of Freiburg and Prof H. Pfundner from Roche created the idea of a new specialty line “Drug Development & Regulatory Affairs” within the existing Master’s degree program in pharmaceutical sciences. There is a need in the industry for university graduates with sound knowledge in the areas of pharmaceutical drug development and regulatory affairs. These topics are usually underrepresented in existing pharmacy degree programs.

Vision and Goals

By connecting pharmacy students with the Pharmaceutical industry and academic partners our organization facilitates a network between these parties. In a global world the pharmacy student of today wants to be involved and connected to potential employers as early as possible. He/she wants to gain experience and insights to the pharmaceutical industry.
