Aim

This program aims to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental principles of biomedical sciences and their applications in clinical research. Participants will gain in-depth knowledge of human anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, and pharmacology, enabling them to comprehend disease mechanisms, evaluate treatment strategies, and contribute effectively to clinical research studies.

Courses Objectives

  • Develop a strong foundation in human anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, and pharmacology, with a focus on their relevance to clinical research.
  • Understand the molecular and cellular basis of diseases, including pathophysiology and mechanisms of action, to support evidence-based decision-making in clinical research.
  • Learn how drugs interact with the human body, including pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, to evaluate drug efficacy and safety.
  • Gain insights into the mechanisms of action of various therapeutic interventions, including pharmaceuticals, biologics, and medical devices.
  • Apply the knowledge of biomedical sciences in critically analyzing scientific literature, designing clinical research studies, and interpreting research findings.
