Acting FDA Commissioner Stephen Ostroff, Author Daniel Pink to Headline RAPS' Regulatory Convergence Conference in Baltimore

RAPS’ annual Regulatory Convergence is now less than three weeks away. The event, taking place this year 24–28 October in Baltimore, is the largest annual gathering of the global healthcare regulatory community, including healthcare product regulators, scientists, innovators, and regulatory professionals from life sciences companies of all sizes. This year’s conference will feature keynote remarks from Acting Commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Stephen Ostroff; and best-selling author and TV host Daniel Pink.

“Regulation of healthcare products like pharmaceutical drugs, medical devices and biotechnology products impacts all of our lives in so many ways, and regulatory professionals play key roles,” said RAPS Executive Director Sherry Keramidas, PhD, FASAE, CAE. “The Regulatory Convergence is an opportunity to come together as a profession and examine important regulatory issues in depth.”

The conference will feature more than 75 different sessions covering biopharmaceuticals, medical devices, health-related foods, and legal and business issues. More than 300 speakers will present, including officials from at least 22 global agencies and organizations, including:

  • FDA
  • the European Medicines Agency (EMA)
  • the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA)
  • the World Health Organization (WHO)
