Participants will be able to describe how FDA’s Office of New Drugs (OND) uses regulatory science research to address knowledge gaps that slow down or prevent new drug development. They will gain familiarity of research opportunities available to currently enrolled and recently graduated college students through the OND ORISE fellowship program. The learner will also become aware of two OND extramural research programs that have funding opportunities available for external collaborators.
- Overview of OND’s regulatory science research portfolio.
- Examples of how the Office uses funding to address knowledge gaps that prevent or slow down drug development.
- Overview of FDA’s Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) Fellowship Program.
- Examples of opportunities, requirements for applicants, tips for how to find projects and apply for fellowships.
- Overview of OND’s Combatting Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria (CARB) Program.
- Overview of OND’s 21st Century Cures Drug Development Tools Grant Program.
- Description of opportunities for collaborating, types of projects being solicited, and how to apply for funding.
- Location of websites where priority lists and funding opportunities are posted.
- Science, mathematics, or engineering college students (currently enrolled in an accredited U.S. college or university) or post-graduates looking for opportunities to participate in research-based professional development opportunities at FDA.
- Professional development programs at accredited U.S. colleges or universities that award science, technology, engineering, and/or math degrees (example here).
- Biomedical researchers working on topics in the area of drug development tools (e.g., pre-clinical and clinical biomarkers, animal models, clinical outcomes assessments, patient reported outcomes).
- Academic program managers for regulatory science graduate degree or certificate awarding programs (e.g., U Maryland, Johns Hopkins, U Southern California, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Northeastern University, Chapman U, Arizona State University, UC San Diego).
- Federal partners who conduct biomedical research as part of their mission (CDC, NIH/NCAATS, etc.).
- Non-Profit organizations who collaborate with FDA (e.g., Critical Path Institute, Foundation for the National Institutes for Health, Reagan-Udall Foundation).
- Scientific professional development groups who collaborate with FDA (e.g., American Association for the Advancement of Science).

Real-time attendance is required for the certificate of attendance. Certificates are only available during the three weeks post-event. This course:
- has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 4 credits towards a participant’s RAC recertification upon full completion.
- has been pre-approved by SOCRA who accepts documentation of candidate participation in continuing education programs for re-certification if the program is applicable to clinical research regulations, operations or management, or to the candidate's clinical research therapeutic area.
- has been pre-approved by SQA as eligible for 0.25 non-GCP or non-GLP units for every 1 hour of instructional time towards a participant’s RQAP re-registration.
- has been approved by ACRP for continuing education in clinical research. ACRP will provide 1 ACRP contact hour for every 45-60 minutes of qualified material.
