The lunch event, “Perspectives on the FDA” is part of IHIF’s recurring Life Sciences Lunch Series and will be hosted by Barnes & Thronburg LLP.

Program Overview

With a new administration at the helm and a new set of User Fee Agreements recently approved by Congress, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is taking a fresh approach to regulation. In an effort to keep pace with technological and scientific change, the FDA has issued and updated a number of guidance documents for industry – drugs, devices, and IT. Please join us as our panel explores some of the new procedures, shares tips on tapping under-utilized data sources, and offers a look at ahead at 2018.
