New leadership is coming to the FDA, and every FDA-regulated executive wants to know how it will affect them.
Likely new FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb is an old agency hand thrust into a new role. Will he toe the Trump line ... or show independence? Is his past a guide ... or will he strike out in new directions? Will he ease new drug and device approvals ... or toughen them? Increase inspections ... or ease off? More 483s and warning letters ... or fewer?
Whether you’re in drugs, biologics, devices or clinical trials, you need answers now.
Join us for a deep dive into the future of drug and device regulation, featuring two speakers who know the FDA inside and out:
Wayne Pines was the FDA’s chief media spokesman for seven years. He has authored or edited a dozen books about crisis communication and the FDA, and was named the FDA Alumnus of the Year in 2004. He is a director and former president of the Alliance for a Stronger FDA, a coalition of 200 organizations seeking more appropriated funding for FDA. Books include the FDA Advertising and Promotion Manual; A Framework for Pharmaceutical Risk Management; How to Work With the FDA; Making Your Case to the FDA: Strategic Communication Before, During and After Your Drug’s Approval; A Practical Guide to Food and Drug Law and Regulation; and Communicating in a Health Care Crisis. He now manages crisis communications for FDA-regulated clients as a senior consultant with Apco Worldwide.
