TDR news item
5 February 2014

TDR’s Career Development Fellowship on Clinical Research and Development was mentioned in a recent publication of the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations (IFPMA). Their 2013 status report profiled the TDR programme that places scientists from low- and middle-income countries in host pharmaceutical companies to provide supervision and mentorship to the fellow.

The programme also offers networking opportunities through an electronic alumni network, as well as annual meetings of past and current fellows (the next one will be held 19-20 March). The alumni network contributes to the long-term sustainability of the programme by providing a forum for discussion, improved interaction, collaboration, and tracking.

The Gates Foundation and the IFPMA support the TDR Career Development Fellowship. Between 2008 and 2013, 27 fellows were trained.
