The Basic Research certificate program is designed to provide non-clinical professionals with the tools to conduct successful multi-disciplinary, non-clinical biopharmaceutical development studies. Upon completion of the curriculum, you will be equipped to adequately assess risk/benefit utilizing key information obtained from pharmacology, toxicology, and pharmacokinetics to identify lead candidates for further pharmaceutical development.
This educational track is designed for professionals working as:
To earn the certificate, you must complete TWO core courses and TWO elective courses from the list below. Courses must be completed within five years to remain eligible for earning a PERI certificate. Once you have completed the required courses, contact the PERI Registrar for validation, and the Basic Research certificate will be mailed to you.
