» Presentation

Students are assigned to small groups to prepare a response to a fictional drug development scenario. Each group evaluates and prepares a response to a different assignment and will present their response to the class during the final session.

Group 1: Ethnically targeted anti-hypertensive drug

Group 2: Testing of potential anthrax infection treatment

Group 3: Developing an avian influenza vaccine

Group 4: Toxicity of potential Alzheimer's treatment

» Written Assignment

Students compose a brief critical written overview of their assigned drug development project in the form of a typed, double-spaced narrative of no more than 2 pages (500 words). Each student is randomly assigned to take a different perspective on the desired outcome of the project (i.e. industry, consumer, academic, or regulatory perspective). Thus every student will be writing a unique final paper.
