At the request of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM’s) Forum on Drug Discovery, Development, and Translation and the IOM’s Forum on Medical and Public Health Preparedness for Catastrophic Events jointly convened a workshop on March 29–30, 2011. The workshop, titled Advancing Regulatory Science for Medical Countermeasure Development, was designed to (1) examine ways to advance regulatory science for medical countermeasure (MCM) development and regulatory evaluation; (2) identify scientific opportunities to improve, simplify, or speed MCM development; and (3) identify tools and methods to improve the predictability and success rate of candidate MCMs.
