SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

The FDA Science Forum is held biennially to share with the public the unique scientific research and collaborative efforts of our 11,000 scientists and researchers. These scientists and researchers use novel science and technologies to inform FDA's regulatory decision-making—and drive innovation. FDA scientific experts and nationally renowned scientists will speak on the eight topics of the upcoming FDA Science Forum, Transforming Health: Innovation in FDA Science. FDA's Science Forum welcomes the public, industry, academia, patient advocates, sister Agencies, and current and potential collaborators, to learn about the Agency's regulatory science—the type of science that is rarely undertaken by industry or academia, but that makes critical contributions to product quality and safety.

II. Topics for Discussion at the Public Workshop

Sessions in the two-day forum will highlight such areas as FDA research into new predictive tools for developing and evaluating therapeutics, advancing artificial intelligence, evaluating digital health devices, and novel methods of tackling critical public health challenges such as addiction.
