FNIH-hosted workshop about regulatory processes for GMO products

Are you interested in learning the basics about regulatory processes for GMO products? The Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) is hosting a one-day workshop entitled “Moving research from the laboratory for field trials: Regulatory pathway for genetically engineered organisms and their derived products” on November 19, 2019 (the day before the ASTMH Annual meeting starts), in National Harbor, MD, USA.

This workshop aims to provide a basic understanding of regulatory considerations and issues recognized internationally for conducting field trials of investigational genetically engineered organisms and their derived products for applications in public health, agriculture and protection to the environment. The organizers aim to provide a fundamental understanding of regulatory sciences and decision-making processes that will help bridge the gap between conducting basic research and translation research moving towards product development.

Target audience: Scientists (principal investigators, post-doctoral fellows, technicians), institutional oversight committees (IBCs, IACUCs, ERBs), policy makers and other interest groups from public health, animal, conservation, or agricultural research applications conducting or planning to conduct basic science and early translational projects that could lead to product development efforts in the future.

This workshop is designed for those who have no, or not very substantial, experience with regulatory processes within and external to the United States. This workshop will be held under the Chatham House Rule to encourage open discussion and to facilitate the sharing of information. 

Registration deadline October 18, 2019. You can read more and register here
