OWH, in collaboration with the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) Office of Clinical Pharmacology (OCP), hosted a free public workshop including presentations and session discussions by experts in the fields of clinical pharmacology, obstetrics and gynecology, endocrinology, and clinical care. Speakers discussed the current understanding of the impact of menopause on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics (the movement of drugs through the body, and the body’s biological response to drugs, respectively), and exposure-response relationships of FDA-regulated drugs and biologics used by menopausal women for non-menopause-related indications. (Recording: Zoom, 3 hours, 17 minutes) 

OWH and the Johns Hopkins Center of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation held a virtual public workshop to discuss the role of real-world data (RWD) to understand medication use in pregnancy and lactation. Panels discussed ways to address knowledge gaps, opportunities, and challenges of collecting RWD, and current regulatory perspectives on the collection and potential use of RWD. (Recording: JHU/YouTube, 4 hours, 27 minutes)

OWH held a public webinar focused on COVID-19 Vaccines & Women with Dr. Kaveeta Vasisht, FDA’s Associate Commissioner for Women’s Health and Dr. Peter Marks, Director of FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER).
