Centers of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation (CERSIs)


FDA hosts the Centers of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation (CERSI) program to foster robust and innovative approaches to advance regulatory science, and the goal is for the CERSIs to advance regulatory science individually and synergistically, under the CERSI Program led by the Office of Regulatory Science and Innovation (ORSI), through collaborative interactions with FDA scientific experts and funding offices.

The CERSIs promote innovation in regulatory science predominantly through cutting-edge scientific research that supports FDA's regulatory science needs. They may also provide regulatory science information sharing opportunities, such as lectures, workshops, courses, scholar awards, fellowships, and competitions. We aim for the collaborative activities to target one or more of the focus areas in the Regulatory Science Framework.

FDA currently has cooperative agreements with the University of MarylandUniversity of California at San Francisco (UCSF) in a joint effort with Stanford University (UCSF-Stanford)Johns Hopkins University, and Yale University in joint effort with Mayo Clinic.
