The European infrastructure for translational medicine (EATRIS) has announced the launch of the ADVANCE Online Course on December 1st. ADVANCE is a 30-month EU training project, supported by Erasmus Plus with the objective to develop a 3-stage blended learning programme to support early-career biomedical scientists in developing currently missing scientific knowledge, transversal skills and competences to meet the key challenge areas existing in the ATMP development cycle.
The Online course of ADVANCE, consists of ca. 7 hours of interactive lectures and nearly 20 hours of independent hands-on and reading assignments. It is all self-paced, and participants can move through the course as their schedule allows.
This online course is divided into 4 Units representing the key challenges of the ATMPs development cycle: Scientific, Manufacturing, Reimbursement and Regulatory. 12 experts across academia, industry, regulatory sector and patient organisation will discuss the key aspects in the ATMP development pipeline. The lectures are interspersed with questions to help participants stay engaged and think along.
