4-week online academy

Examine key regulatory and data requirements for the practical application of biowaivers in the EU and US

Course Overview

A biowaiver means that in vivo bioavailability and/or bioequivalence studies may be waived (not considered necessary for approval). As a result, they represent a useful and cost-effective alternative to performing in vivo studies for generic drugs, however, they can be challenging to get right first time.  
This course will improve your understanding of various biowaiver types to ensure success in your future applications. Study 8 modules over 4 weeks, using case studies and practical guidance. By examining the requirements for BCS-based, Strength, and IVIVC biowaivers, you will have the confidence and skills to implement a strategic approach for new product registrations.
