Developing a New Flu Prevention Drug

$16.22$124.37

How is a new drug developed and tested to make sure it is safe and effective?

Development of new drugs involves clinical trials – scientific experiments used to determine if a drug is both safe and effective.

  • Conduct simulated laboratory tests and analyze data to determine if a new flu prevention drug is safe and effective.
  • Learn about the clinical trials process and clinical research.
