Goals and Objectives
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a public workshop co-sponsored by the Agency and the Critical Path Institute (C-Path) to discuss on-going efforts by the International Neonatal Consortium (INC) to apply regulatory science to neonates.
The purpose of this scientific workshop is to continue discussion among regulators, researchers, health care providers, representatives of the pharmaceutical industry, health care organizations, parent/patient advocacy organizations, and the general public regarding the regulatory science required to accelerate the development of therapeutics for the neonatal population. The workshop will seek to 1) assess the progress of INC 2) engage additional participants in the current INC projects, and 3) explore additional initiatives that the INC members may decide to undertake.
Who should attend
The primary audience for the workshop includes regulators (both in the U.S. and abroad), researchers, health care providers, and representatives of the pharmaceutical industry, health care organizations, parent/patient advocacy organizations, and the general public. The Workshop will seek input from all attendees.
Individuals who wish to participate in the scientific workshop (in person or via the Internet) may register on or before Feb. 25, 2016, by visiting: Second Annual Neonatal Scientific Workshop (http://www.cvent.com/d/4fq9yg).
