FDA’s Science Forum offers an exciting opportunity for the public to view the unique scientific research and collaborative efforts of FDA’s 11,000 scientists. You’ll get a chance to see first-hand how FDA’s researchers are using novel science and technologies to inform FDA’s regulatory decision-making—and drive innovation.
