About FDA

How does an individual become a member of an FDA advisory committee?

Professional societies; industry, consumer, and patient advocacy groups; or other interested people may nominate scientific members and consumer, industry, and patient representatives. In addition, individuals who want to serve on a committee may nominate themselves.

FDA requests that candidates provide detailed information regarding financial holdings, employment, research grants and contracts, and other potential conflicts of interest that may rule out membership.
