Emergency Preparedness and Response
Pillar II, Highlights, 2012
Central to MCMi is the science that underpins virtually every regulatory decision FDA makes. Through the MCMi regulatory science program, FDA is helping build the innovative scientific tools we need, like new models that can accurately reflect human response, to help make sure the drugs, vaccines, and medical devices being developed are safe and effective. In addition to collaborative research projects with our Federal partners, FDA is sponsoring and co-sponsoring public workshops and scientific meetings to explore critical topics related to MCM development and approval. In early June, we will be highlighting many of the MCM regulatory science projects we are conducting at a 2-day public workshop.
