CREMA – the Clinical option

CREMA has launched an advanced post graduate diploma in clinical research management.

The Indian pharmaceutical and contract manufacturing market has come on the forefront of the global outsourcing market. The economic recession, which has hit the West significantly, has further enhanced the necessity for MNCs to carry out clinical trails in the country. According to the Merrill Lynch report, the global outsourcing market is valued at US $ 44 billion in 2007 and is expected to touch US $ 73 billion 2011. Globally, India is the fourth largest pharmaceutical market in terms of volume and 13th in value terms. Indian contract manufacturing market is estimated US $ 1.0 billion in 2008 and is likely to grow at a CAGR of about 42 per cent to touch US $ 2.5 billion by 2010. Hence there will be a huge demand for qualified and trained clinical research professionals.
