Summary of 10th Annual Global Summit on Regulatory Science (GSRS20)

The 10th Global Summit on Regulatory Science (GSRS20) was held virtually September 28-30, 2020, co-hosted by NCTR and the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences. The theme for the 10th anniversary Global Summit was “Emerging Technologies and Their Application to Regulatory Science—A Global Perspective.” It included over 60 presentations and 2 workshops, speakers from 14 different countries, and scientific leadership from FDA, National Institutes of Health, European Food Safety Agency, Joint Research Centre, Canadian Food Inspection Agency, National Institutes for Food and Drug Control, and National Institute of Health Sciences—to name just a few organizations. You can click on the links throughout the GSRS20 program to view the recorded scientific presentations and workshops on the following topics: 

  • Plenary Presentations from World Health Leaders
  • Artificial Intelligence for Drug Development and Risk Assessment
  • OMICS, Biomarkers, and Precision Medicine
  • Microphysiological Systems and Stem Cells
  • Bioimaging
  • Microbiome
  • Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning
  • Nanotechnology/Nanoplastics

The annual Global Summit is sponsored by the Global Coalition for Regulatory Science Research 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 GSRS20 drew over 1,100 registrants from approximately 50 countries representing regulatory and research institutes along with academic and industry participants.

Despite the worldwide challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic, the virtual GSRS20 was a huge success with in-depth scientific presentations on emerging technologies for regulatory application. A limited number of academic and industry presenters were invited to showcase cutting-edge research, successes, ongoing clinical trials, and challenges. A recording of the Q & A session where research presenters answered participants’ questions in real-time via chat is available for viewing.
