Global Pharmaceutical Sciences

Allergan-USC Industry Fellowship

This one-year fellowship provides a hands-on experience with the Global Pharmaceutical Sciences group that develops and produces clinical supplies from the moment the product enters human trials to the point of commercialization. Fellows are involved in developing manufacturing procedures and analytical methods, constructing regulatory submission documentation and fostering rapid assessment of drug candidates.

Through the group’s efforts, the fellow gains exposure in various aspects of chemistry, manufacturing and control (CMC), including quality assurance, quality control, validation and facility/equipment/instrumentation services. The fellow also learns about a wide array of regulatory, quality and operational aspects of drug development, manufacturing and release.
