Virtual Field Trip
Did you know that it can take up to ten years from the initial research phase to the time a medication actually becomes available for public consumption? Or that out of every 5,000 potential ideas, only 5 new medicines make it to human trial and that on average less than 1 of those 5 will make it to the pharmacy? Discover the fascinating science involved in the pursuit of a new medication during the Generation Health Virtual Field Trip. Download the VFT Educator Guide below for pre- and post-VFT activities!

Join us for a behind-the-scenes look at pharmaceutical labs at AstraZeneca where scientists are continually working to create medical breakthroughs and find solutions to health problems that can affect us all. Along the way we'll meet some of these scientists to learn more about what inspires them to work in this field. Students will learn about the importance of failure as a way to learn and grow, especially when it comes to innovating new medicines.
