About Gray's Global Medicines Development

"Dr Gray has done a masterful job of explaining each stage of the drug development process. This book will become an invaluable resource for anyone associated with drug development and commercialisation. It is crucial for early stage pharma and biotech companies to understand fully all the aspects of the drug development process and to maintain a commerical focus throughout the development process. It is refreshing to se a comprehensive drug development resource that starts with a market focus and advocates the development of target product profiles to help guide drug development plans. Dr Gray's book is easy to read and will help both business managers and researchers alike fill knowledge gaps in the drug development process and facilitate cross functional collaborations within drug development project teams. As a consultant working with early stage specialty pharma companies, Dr Gray's book provides a comprehensive overview that I can refernce when working with clients and use as a guide throughout the business planning process".

"This superb account of the subject succeeds in extracting the essentials while being of sufficient depth to make it suitable for a range of readers from science and business backgrounds, from beginners to those with prior knowledge in one area. The linkage to regulatory guidelines is of particular value, making this a unique learning tool. The clarity of the text reflects the teaching style of Dr Gray on the European Course of Pharmaceutical Medicine which has been highly valued over many years".

It is excellent, I have never seen such a positive result on any of the courses we held so far! This is for the most past your accomplishment and I would like to thank you!"
