Implement Intramural Component of MCM Regulatory Science Program

Description: Build robust intramural regulatory science program designed to address identified MCM gaps; enhance FDA’s capacity to review, monitor, and assess MCMs; and prepare and respond to public health emergencies.

Accomplishment: FDA launched the intramural component of the MCM Regulatory Science Program in FY 2011. The MCM Regulatory Science Program focuses on high-priority projects that are of value for public health and national security. To ensure that the MCM Regulatory Science Program is appropriately targeted and coordinated with priorities of the Public Health Emergency Medical Countermeasures Enterprise (Enterprise), FDA established a Steering Committee for Advancing MCMi Regulatory Science. This Steering Committee is comprised of Enterprise partners – including NIH, CDC, BARDA, and DoD – and is charged with evaluating and approving MCM regulatory science research proposals primarily based upon alignment with Enterprise priorities and secondarily based upon scientific/technical merit and feasibility. More than 90 intramural regulatory science projects across CBER, CDER and CDRH have been funded under the MCM Regulatory Science Program through FY 2012.
