Session Objectives:
  • Identify potential approaches to facilitate coordination of activities under CAN with FDA regulatory science initiatives and activities.
  • Discuss existing activities in multiple sectors and address ways to maximize CAN impact in the drug development ecosystem.
  • Explore promising models for public–private collaborations that could be strengthened or facilitated by activities under CAN. Discuss barriers to such collaborations and identify opportunities and potential solutions for moving past the identified barriers.
