FRM9510 – Statistical Experimental Design for Industrial Pharmaceutical Development
Schedule, syllabus and examination date
The main purpose of the course is to make the students able to construct various factorial study designs related to formulation, packaging, manufacture and stability studies of pharmaceutical products, and to interpret the corresponding data by the use of simple statistical software.
After completion of the course the students should be able to create factorilal designs, and evaluate the results from such studies by various statistical methods.
PhD candidates from the University of Oslo should apply for classes and register for examinations through Studentweb.
If a course has limited intake capacity, priority will be given to PhD candidates who follow an individual education plan where this particular course is included. Some national researchers’ schools may have specific rules for ranking applicants for courses with limited intake capacity.
PhD candidates who have been admitted to another higher education institution must apply for a position as a visiting student within a given deadline.
