The Biden administration has brought in new policies and personnel to the federal health care team. The FDA remains in the news every day as it exercises its vast responsibilities over drugs and devices. At the same time, the FDA must restore its reputation, show that it has learned from the pandemic, manage some of the most challenging issues and decisions it has ever faced, and be prepared to effect still further changes.
These developments mean regulatory professionals need to fully understand what’s happened thus far and to anticipate, understand, and comply with what’s coming in the future.
This virtual program will feature presentations and a panel discussion of five experts with decades of experience working for and with FDA, followed by an opportunity for attendees to ask questions. The experts will explain what we have seen in the first six months of the Biden administration and what to expect going forward in regard to new drug and device development and approvals.
