Charlie Webb and Professor Michael Cima

Professor Michael Cima chats with host Charlie Webb about his Drug and Medical device development course offered through the xPRO program at MIT. The course goals are to help participants gain a “big picture” perspective of the entire drug and medical device development process, from day one strategic planning through product commercialization. Also, students will understand the critical interplay between strategy and development and how they affect each other. This online program helps you explore the process of discovering, developing, testing, and bringing a medical product to market.
