The Drug Safety Research Unit (DSRU) is an independent academic unit internationally respected for its work in Pharmacovigilance, Pharmacoepidemiology, Risk Management and Training for over 30 years.
In partnership with doctors in England, the DSRU, led by Director Professor Saad Shakir, aims to protect patients in primary and specialist care from unwanted adverse effects of newly marketed medicines using our unique methods of monitoring patients during the lifecycle of medicines.
Professor Shakir was an invited speaker at the Fourth Bordeaux Pharmacoepidemiology Festival in France (9-11 April 2014). The title of Professor Shakir's lecture was “Risk Management in pharmacovigilance: a glimpse under the bonnet”. He addressed scientific concepts, operational issues and methodological research in this area with case studies.View our latest news
