Since 2013, the University of Maryland CERSIdisclaimer icon, an FDA grant recipient, and the University of Rochesterdisclaimer icon have held their annual America’s Got Regulatory Science Talent Competition to foster student interest in the pioneering field of regulatory science.  The competition requires student teams to come up with innovative solutions to regulatory science challenges within eight scientific priority areas that FDA has identified in its Strategic Plan for Advancing Regulatory Science. This year’s panel of judges evaluated each of the presentations for the quality, novelty, potential significance and feasibility of the students’ proposed solutions.  

And don't miss the Recorded Webcast of the 2017 Winners of the America's Got Regulatory Science Talent Competition, where they present their innovative ideas.
