A total of 51 new courses have been added in the fields of nanotechnology, pharmaceutical science, data analysis, chromatography, and analytical methods. In addition to courses in specific disciplines, lab management courses are a significant part of the programme and cover topics such as communications, time management, lab safety and best practices that provide critical insight into the interpretation of the requirements of regulatory aspects, global guidelines, and laboratory standards.
