I. Background

The Reagan-Udall Foundation for the FDA is an independent 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, organization created by Congress to advance the mission of FDA to modernize medical, veterinary, food, food ingredient, and cosmetic product development; accelerate innovation, and enhance product safety. With the ultimate goal of improving public health, the Foundation provides a unique opportunity for different sectors (FDA, patient groups, academia, other government entities, and industry) to work together in a transparent way to create exciting new research and engagement projects to advance regulatory science.

The Foundation acts as a neutral third party to establish novel, scientific collaborations. Much like any other independently developed information, FDA evaluates the scientific information from these collaborations to determine how the Foundation projects can help the Agency to fulfill its mission.

Foundation projects currently include: Innovation in Medical Evidence Development and Surveillance, a public-private partnership that allows researchers to study drug safety concerns of interest to public health; an Expanded Access Navigator that offers instructional material and resources for physicians, patients, and their caregivers on how to access investigational drugs outside of clinical trials; and a new joint Foundation and FDA regulatory science fellowship program.Start Printed Page 11802
