Part 1   Part 2


The Centers of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation (CERSI) program led by the Office of Regulatory Science and Innovation (ORSI) promotes innovation in regulatory science through cutting-edge scientific research and information sharing opportunities that support FDA's regulatory science needs. The collaborations between CERSIs and FDA scientific experts target one or more of the focus areas in the Regulatory Science Framework. The current CERSIs were selected and awarded through a competitive process for a cooperative agreement. Renewal awards were made to University of MarylandJohns Hopkins UniversityYale University in joint effort with Mayo Clinic, and University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) in a joint effort with Stanford University (UCSF-Stanford). A new award was made to the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, in a partnership with Duke University, which will be called Research Triangle CERSI.
