FDA Information Repository for Academic Institutions

Performer: Datapharm Foundation

Principal Investigator: Steven Weitzman

Date Funded/Duration: 9/30/14 - 9/29/15

Regulatory Science Challenge

There is a need to make available new tools that can enable researchers to easily search FDA’s primary resources and present that information in an easily accessible format. This capability would be an invaluable resource for the academic institutions that, with FDA’s encouragement, are implementing regulatory science degree programs and training the future workforce for FDA and regulated industry.

Project Description

The FDA Information Repository for Academic Institutions (IRAI) will give students and faculty the latest software and tools with an array of user-friendly features to provide students and educators online access to the extensive repository of relevant FDA and related-agency materials. The software and tools will eliminate the current need for extensive, time-consuming culling through a massive amount of search results. The project will ensure rapid results to text searches across large volumes of mission-critical reference information.

Project Goals

To facilitate the success of existing and new academic degree programs focused on FDA’s regulatory science activities to ensure a well-educated, up-to-date regulatory science workforce with the skills needed today and in the future.
