Date:10/26/2011

The centers, which will be located at the University of Maryland and Georgetown University, will focus on strengthening science and training needed to modernize and improve the ways drugs and medical devices are reviewed and evaluated, a major focus within the FDA.

In August 2011, the agency released the strategic plan for: "Advancing Regulatory Science at FDA" (http://www.fda.gov/ScienceResearch/SpecialTopics/RegulatoryScience/ucm267719.htm).

More recently, the agency announced a related innovation initiative, "Driving Biomedical Innovation: Initiatives for Improving Products for Patients" (http://www.fda.gov/AboutFDA/ReportsManualsForms/Reports/ucm274333.htm).

"These partnerships represent a critical, necessary and creative investment - one that will benefit not just FDA and academia, but also American consumers and industry," said FDA Chief Scientist Jesse L. Goodman, M.D., M.P.H. "The Centers of Excellence will create new scientific research, training and staff exchange opportunities for FDA and leading area institutions."

Working closely with FDA scientists, CERSI researchers will assist the FDA in driving innovation in medical product development as well as in advancing laboratory, population, behavioral, and manufacturing sciences. The agency chose to pilot the CERSIs in the Washington, D.C. area, to allow for the greatest possible face-to-face collaboration and training with FDA staff.

"These partnerships will promote faster and better scientific approaches to product development, helping people in need and supporting biotech innovation," Goodman said.
