December 2

13th International PhD Symposium 
HZI Graduate School 

November 30

Course: Good Clinical Practice
Aim & Content: The workshop will explain structure and setup of clinical trials for pharmaceuticals. Here especially different authorities such as BfArM, Paul-Ehrlich-Institute, EMA or FDA are involved. Based on the example of BioNTech’s mRNA vaccine against COVID-19 the group will establish an own clinical trial which will be inspected by participants acting as EMA/FDA inspectors.
Lecturer: Dr. Christian Grote-Westrick 

November 23 – 24

Course: Plan B – Leaving academia – How to find a job on the non-academic labour market
Aim & Content: In the workshop we will first find out which competencies you have gained up until now. Based on the competencies we will explore the labour market and develop ideas for job profiles that fit you. You will receive an introduction  to  the  job  search.  Furthermore,  we  will discuss if it might be an alternative to start your own business. In addition, we will consider at what point “Plan B“ should begin: Up until when can one successfully leave academia? 
Course Leader: Dr. Matthias Schwarzkopf

November 3

Course: Biotech Quality Manager
Aim & Content: The workshop will illustrate business activities in quality management in pharma and medical device industry. The job of a quality manager represents a popular access position to industry since legal GMP requirements are constantly increasing and need for quality managers is equally emerging.
