Drug discovery and development together, are the complete process of identifying a new drug and bringing it to the market. Discovery may involve screening of chemical libraries, identification of the active ingredient from a natural remedy or design resulting from an understanding of the target.

Development includes studies on microorganisms and animals, clinical trials and ultimately regulatory approval. The purpose of the discussion is to provide a high-level review of the drug development process and understand pre-requisites in drug regulatory science that is required for a successful career in the pharmaceutical industry.
