ADMET Process
Biofuels Processes
All courses in the certificate are now available
ONLINE.
The
ADMET
processes—Absorption,
Distribution, Metabolism, Excretion, and
Toxicology—form one of the foundations of
all modern drug discovery and development. It
has been reported that 50% of drug failures in
development and clinical trials are due to poor
ADMET properties. In order to minimize these
costly failures, the paradigm of drug discovery
and development has therefore been shifting to
examining and optimizing these properties as
early as possible. This requires virtually every
organization that embarks on the challenge of
creating pharmaceutical solutions to health or
agricultural concerns to become expert at analyzing these processes.
Accordingly, successful professionals in the field
must be aware of and proficient in the examination of each of these processes, and employers
must ensure the continued development of a
workforce capable of understanding and facilitating systems and environments where these
processes can be researched and evaluated with
integrity and efficiency.
Despite the core importance of the ADMET
processes to pharmaceutical science, few scientific, regulatory or business professionals possess
a complete understanding of the elements of
ADMET. Traditional science education prepares research specialists in one or two processes,
but not the full complement and cycle. To the
extent that scientific professionals understand
and can incorporate ADMET concepts into
their research and development projects, they
are increasingly able to provide successful solutions to the R&D challenge, and they become
more valuable to their organizations.
Individual courses in each of these processes
offered by Extension over the past few years
have confirmed the interest of the profession in
strengthening understanding and application of
each process element.
The Biofuels Processes Specialized Certificate
provides students with comprehensive view of
the landscape of biofuels research and production, analysis and downstream processing, as well
as project management and other business skills
required to excel in a management-level biofuels
position. This program is entirely online.The
Biofuels Processes Specialized Certificate is aimed
at training professionals for roles in the growing
biofuels industry. Professionals may act as project
managers, business development or other support
roles that do not require direct hands on experience with the experimental techniques used in
biofuels research.
Conditions for Admission
The primary audience for the program is practicing professionals with a science degree, currently working in the pharmaceutical field.

Geographical Information Systems (GIS) is a
relatively broad term that can refer to a number of different technologies, processes, and
methods. It is attached to many operations
and has many applications related to engineering, planning, management, transport/logistics,
insurance, telecommunications, and business.
For that reason, GIS and location intelligence
applications can be the foundation for many
location-enabled services that rely on analysis,
visualization and dissemination of results for
collaborative decision making.
There is booming application of these technologies. They range from simple GIS systems
embedded in most mobile devices to applications in engineering, planning, public health,
demographics, environmental and conservation,
transport/logistics, insurance, law enforcement,
telecommunications, marketing, and multiple
other business applications.
The GIS certficate will teach students the theoretical underpinnings of GIS in order to make
informed use of existing GIS applications and
gain skills needed to construct new applications
in the physical or social realms. The full range
of GIS capabilities is covered, including data
capture, analysis, modeling and cartographic
representation. The skills gained will be highly
practical with good, hands on, understanding of
the software used in GIS. In addition, we will

Molecular diagnostics, or in vitro diagnostics,
are rapidly becoming critical to the delivery of
healthcare.
In vitro diagnostic products are intended for use
in diagnosis of disease or other conditions and
play a significant role in prevention, monitoring,
diagnosis, and treatment. DNA expression patterns, or biomarkers, can now provide information for the design of new treatments, monitor
a treatment’s effectiveness as it is studied in a
clinical trial, and predict a patient’s response to
a new treatment. Molecular diagnostics provide
a reliable way to determine the course of action
for many diseases. It focuses on patterns and
uncovers changes, improving a clinician’s ability
to find irregularities. Some common products
that are in-vitro diagnostics include drug tests
and blood tests for glucose, liver enzymes, and
levels of electrolytes.
This certificate provides an overview of the field
from discovery to commercialization of different
diagnostic products. You will learn how to use
genomic information to discover biomarkers
and how to move through stages of validation
and into the studies that are needed to obtain
regulatory approval. This certificate is designed
to be applicable to a range of professionals in
the diagnostics field, from sales to regulatory
affairs and quality assurance professionals, bench
scientists in different branches of biology, and
bioinformatics professionals among others.
This program is designed for the chemist,
bio-chemist or biologist in the pharmaceutical
and biologic industry new to quality assurance
and control, and is beneficial to senior year
undergraduates and graduate students (using
concurrent enrollment) interested in a career
in QA/QC.
The program focuses on the quality requirements for the production and control of biologics and drugs, and the differences between
quality control and quality assurance and their
interaction with manufacturing. It highlights
the importance of implementing and maintaining a quality system during the early stages of
drug development, including the plethora of
documents and controls necessary to make such
a system effective. Guidelines and regulations
from the FDA and the California State food and
drug branch regulate the production of drug
products. Quality Assurance (QA) monitors the
manufacturer’s compliance to these guidelines
and regulations.
Instruction covers how to write, issue and
control SOPs; manufacturing directions; and
how to review and archive a batch history and
other relevant documents. Emphasis is placed
on conducting inspections and vendor audits
for compliance to cGMPs to include contract
manufacturers, bulk pharmaceutical chemical
manufacturers and contract test laboratories.
The program covers cGLPs and their applications to audits of facilities that provide toxicological services. Details on compiling, writing
and archiving audit reports is provided.
This program provides a comprehensive and
balanced education focusing on the key areas
of Regulatory Affairs. Provided as an introduction to the field, this program was developed
from increasing demand in the local biotech
community.
To completely master the field of Regulatory
Affairs, a Professional Certificate is recommended.
