The first deliverance was done by Dr. Manoj Jadhav where he conveyed the importance of collaborations of different disciplines of the Pharmaceutical Industry for better research outcomes. He also shed light on the concept of rare diseases and how only 5% of diseases have a cure or treatment available in the market. In addition to that, he also explained in detail the Regulatory Milestones in Drug Development which included the following points such as the need for drug development, how it is beneficial for the patient, and how drug development requires a lot of resources. Further, he elaborated on the importance of translational science, learning about the target population, and regulatory key milestones which was followed by challenges faced by the global pharmaceutical industry.

The second part of the session was continued by Dr. Priyanka Ingle who delivered a presentation on Drug Development and its critical considerations. The agenda was divided into three parts, which included successful Drug Development and regulatory strategy, Benefit-Risk assessment framework from FDA’s perspective and Importance of Innovation. She also explained the MEDICI- EFFECT which meant innovation at intersection of discipline. This discussion further continued with the meaningful outcomes for drug development which included Patient Centeredness, Time Efficiency, Safety, Efficacy and Cost Effectiveness. In addition to this, she also explained about the major driving factors for a successful Drug Development, measuring efficacy in clinical trials, ESTIMAND and S curve.

 The last part of the workshop was an interactive session, where all the students were divided into different groups and were allocated with a question related to the case study of emergency use authorization of a covid-19 drug, which had to be solved by referring to a case study. This part was most beneficial to the students as the application of the whole workshop was learnt in this group activity.
