Carol D. Linden, Ph.D., Director of the Office of Regulatory Science and Innovation within the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will present at the CTSI Seminar Series from noon to 1 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 15, in Helen Wood Hall Auditorium.

Linden, who serves in the Office of the Chief Scientist, Office of the Commissioner, oversees a broad array of intramural and extramural programs that focus on bringing scientific and technological advances – and the education surrounding the regulation of these products – to the American public.

Her seminar will highlight some of the FDA’s initiatives to promote regulatory science, including through external partnerships. Largely, these partnerships focus on how the FDA can identify and integrate emerging scientific developments into the regulatory process to ultimately improve the development and approval of safe and effective medical products.

The lecture is part of the the Fall CTSI Seminar Series, which is themed “Advancing Regulatory Science and Translational Science: Research, Training and Partnerships.” Lunch will be served, but please bring your own beverage.
