Percent of FDA advisory committee member positions vacant at the end of the month

Dictionary: Access to state-of-the-art, scientific expert advice to support agency decision making processes is imperative to the FDA advisory committee process. Having the fewest vacancies on our committees allows the agency to have ready access to those experts and supports the ability of FDA to meet its public health mission. For more information about FDA advisory committees, please visit http://www.fda.gov/AdvisoryCommittees/default.htm
