Advisory Committee Vacancies, Qualifications, and Experience

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is requesting nominations for members to serve on its advisory committees. FDA seeks to include the views of women and men, members of all racial and ethnic groups, and individuals with and without disabilities on its advisory committees and, therefore, encourages nominations of appropriately qualified candidates from these groups.

  • The Food and Drug Administration's various product centers manage the advisory committees that review the products regulated by each center, such as drugs, biologics, and medical devices.
  • Vacancies on this website are updated periodically.
  • One or more vacancies listed may be in the nomination process or a final appointment may have been made.
