2-years as a RA graduate and then what?

At the beginning of the month I took the chance to sit down with the two RA graduates Mark and Sascha that have just returned from their rotation abroad.

What does a Regulatory Affairs (RA) graduate actually do?

Category: R&D Global Development | (10) comments
