The May 31-June 1 FDA Science Forum is a unique opportunity for FDA to demonstrate to the public and our peers in the scientific community the cutting-edge research FDA does to support its mission of protecting and advancing the public health.

The new science and emerging technologies featured in this Forum–from 3D printing and “omics” technologies to whole genome sequencing–are transforming biomedicine and food safety in ways that were unimaginable just two decades ago.

And these technologies are changing the DNA of FDA as well.  The Forum gives us a chance to highlight not only how FDA applies new science to speed safe innovation but how we’re using these new technologies to perform our mission more effectively and to collaborate in exciting new ways with our stakeholders—academia, industry, sister agencies, patients, consumers, and others.
