Addressing CBER’s new direction for regulatory, quality and compliance oversight is a must to stay compliant.

CBER’s 2021-2025 Strategic Plan is a clear response to current threats posed by COVID-19 and the agency’s focus on incorporating lessons learned for future pandemics to streamline supply chains and mitigate product shortage risks. Its goals require incorporating innovative technologies to more quickly develop safe and effective biologics.

Know this: CBER’s emphasis is on incorporating advanced manufacturing processes and using machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) along with real-world data (RWD) and real-world evidence (RWE). Will you be left behind?

Kalah Auchincloss, JD, MPH and Madeleine Giaquinto, JD of Greenleaf Health, Inc. will share how to implement strategic engagement and planning and develop a quality and compliance strategy that aligns with CBER’s regulatory expectations.

Ms. Auchincloss is executive vice president and deputy general counsel and a former FDA staffer in CDER’s Office of Compliance as well as former deputy chief of staff to the FDA commissioner, while Ms. Giaquinto is manager of regulatory affairs.
