The mission of the FDA’s Oncology Center of Excellence (OCE) is to achieve patient-centered regulatory decision-making through innovation and collaboration. Since its inception in 2017, the OCE has initiated multiple innovative pilot projects to create a collaborative scientific environment to advance development of oncology products for our most important stakeholders—patients with cancer. As the OCE celebrates its third year of operation, we invite the public to hear about some of our innovative pilot projects and programs and solicit feedback from the oncology community.

Workshop Goals and Objectives:

  • Update the public on the status of several OCE projects
  • Obtain feedback on the impact of OCE and its pilot programs 
  • Hear from the public on how OCE can advance cancer drug development 

The workshop will:  

  • Introduce the public to the structure and function of the OCE
  • Describe multiple OCE programs and pilot projects
  • Hear from stakeholder panelists about their experience with these projects
  • Solicit feedback from workshop attendees on directions for the future of OCE

Webcast Information:
