U.S. Drug Approval Process April 8

3/10/08


Dr. Ronald Harning, director of clinical research and regulatory affairs at Teijin America, Inc., will present "Drug Approval in the U.S.: A Review of the Process and Potential Career Opportunities" on Tuesday, April 8, at 12 noon at Mercer County Community College (MCCC). The talk takes place in Room 109 in the Communications Building on Mercer's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. Part of Mercer's Distinguished Lecture Series, it is free and open to the public.

"Dr. Harning is back at Mercer by popular demand," said Dr. Diane Hilker, associate professor of biology at MCCC. "He spoke on campus in 2005 on the biology of cancer. His broad background in the pharmaceutical field will be of great interest to those in the allied health fields, especially to those who wish to explore potential careers in both pre-clinical and clinical aspects of drug development."
