New Frontiers in Science Distinguished Lectureship Program


Audience participating in New Frontiers in Science Lecture

FDA's New Frontiers in Science Distinguished Lectureship Program fosters expert scientific exchange between the scientific community and FDA.  It represents an important part of FDA's efforts to expand the range of scientific professional development opportunities it provides its staff to ensure that the Agency has the skills and know-how required to modernize or develop new regulatory pathways for our products.

Supported by a cosponsorship agreement with the Health Research Alliance (HRA), a national alliance of nongovernmental, nonprofit funders of health research and training, the lectureship invites experts in cutting-edge science for a one- to three-day visit to FDA to deliver lectures, seminars, or short tutorials on their area of expertise and address the audience's questions. 

HRA promotes open communication and collaboration among member organizations; provides comprehensive data and analysis about the funding of biomedical research and training by HRA member organizations; identifies gaps in funding and facilitates innovative grantmaking; and addresses issues key to accelerating research discovery and its translation.
