Global Summit on Regulatory Science

Global Summit on Regulatory Science 2018 logo

The Global Summit on Regulatory Science (GSRS) is an international conference for discussion of innovative technologies and partnerships to enhance translation of basic science into regulatory applications within the global context. The conference provides an opportunity for scientists from government, industry, and academic-research communities to objectively assess the utility of emerging technologies (such as nanotechnology, imaging, omics for translational science, personalized medicine, medical product safety, and food safety) for addressing regulatory-research questions and to discuss the best way to translate these technologies into real-world applications. The conference provides a platform where regulators, policy makers, and bench scientists from various countries can exchange views on how to develop, apply, and implement innovative methodologies into regulatory assessments in their respective countries, as well as harmonizing strategy via global collaboration. To engage the global community to address regulatory-science research and training needs, GSRS will be held in different countries on an annual basis.

Summary of GSRS17 — Brasilia, Brazil

Because of the importance for international regulators, policy makers, and scientists to exchange views on how to develop and implement innovative methodologies into regulatory assessments, NCTR established an annual internationally renowned Global Summit on Regulatory Science. Now in its eighth year, the Global Summit’s goal is to engage the global community and harmonize research strategies via collaborations that aim to build knowledge of and promote regulatory science, define research needs, and seek to strengthen product safety worldwide by training regulatory scientists. The Global Summit is led by the Global Coalition which is comprised of regulatory science leaders from around the world. NCTR’s Director serves as the co-chair of the Coalition’s executive committee and works with the Coalition to promote global interaction. The 2017 Global Summit on Regulatory Science was held September 18-20, 2017, in Brasilia, Brazil. The Summit hosted a record number of 200+ attendees and presentations from scientists representing 10 different countries. The Summit reinforced the need for and initiation of scientific exchange and collaboration.

Over 200 scientists from 13 countries attended GSRS17.
