It is a well known fact that clinical research plays a vital role in today’s world, as it is needed for evaluating newly developed treatments and therapies in an ethical way. Scientists have now started recognizing the impacts of the diversity we hold in inter-individual and inter-racial gene pools, making the clinical research process even more challenging. The constant progress towards developing personalized medicine is reshaping the entire pharmaceutical research and development industry.

The domain of regulatory affairs lies at the heart of this scientific discipline, and it creates a detailed web of standardized laws and conventions, which aim to balance both innovation and safety for research. When today’s clinical research environment is taken into consideration, professionals in regulatory affairs, take the helm of multinational projects, making sure that all trials are conducted according to the regulatory requirements of the country of the sponsor, and the host country too.

At the James Lind Institute, we provide students, who are interested in clinical trial regulatory affairs, with all the professional skills required to work in the field. We recognize that today's regulatory affairs professionals do not work in isolation, but rather as teams, constantly communicating with counterparts located in different geographies and regulatory landscapes. The APGDCR-RA program has been designed to be broad in scope so that it covers clinical trial regulations of all major regions such as the US FDA, EMA, MHRA, HSA Singapore, DCGI, MHLW etc, thus providing students with the knowledge about the regulatory requirements of all these regions.
