What We Do
CBER’s Manufacturers Assistance and Technical Training Branch (MATTB) responds to public inquiries for information (by phone and email) from the biologics industry. MATTB strives to provide timely, accurate and useful information to stakeholders.
How We Can Help You
If you have a question about a biologics topic, we may be able to help you. Our team makes every effort to respond to email within 5 business days. If we are unable to respond in this timeframe, we will contact you with an update or request for further clarification to better assist you.
If your inquiry is related to a regulatory submission that has been received by CBER, questions should be directed to the Regulatory Project Manager (RPM) assigned to that submission.
To provide our stakeholders with timely, accurate and useful information about CBER regulated products.
We strive to continuously educate our stakeholders with understandable and accessible science-based regulatory information about CBER regulated products. To achieve our mission, we stay current on regulatory issues, new scientific advances, and support CBER’s workforce to ensure that we disseminate information that is timely, accurate and useful.
