An educational opportunity for students and graduates to deepen their knowledge and learn directly from the global life science experts and professionals
About Biomapas Academy
Biomapas hosts its own academy – a multidisciplinary program, oriented to bring the exceptional practice to students and foster the growth of their professional careers. It is a unique opportunity for young professionals to broaden their understanding in the life sciences industry.
During the 3-month program, you will get an opportunity to find out more about three different fields:
Biomapas experts from Clinical Operations will teach you to decipher the complicated structure of clinical trials, including its phases and the differences between them, relevant and up-to-date legal requirements, parties involved and their responsibilities.
Biomapas specialists will help you to navigate through the broad field of Regulatory Affairs, from determining the development of medicinal products to drug discovery, medical writing, marketing authorization routes and the ever-changing legislation.
Our global professionals will educate you in discovering the depths of Pharmacovigilance, its main components, relationships between them and will give a sneak peek into the key roles in this field, such as Local Safety Officer or Qualified Person for Pharmacovigilance.
During the Academy, more than 10 global experts from Lithuania, Poland, Greece, Czech Republic and Russia will share their industry insights and discuss relevant issues and questions to encourage a better understanding of Clinical Operations, Regulatory Affairs and Pharmacovigilance.
Previous Biomapas Academy has attracted strongly motivated, ambitious and talented students as well as recent graduates. The success of the project has led to the further expansion of Biomapas Academy – it’s going international in 2021. Participants are welcome not only from Lithuania but from Georgia, Ukraine, Poland and Russia as well.
The 2021 Academy is being held online so that every student is safe and sound.
