FDA Advisory Committee Strategy Summit 2018

November 5, 2018 @ 8:00 am - November 6, 2018 @ 3:15 pm



At ExL Events’ FDA Advisory Committee Strategy Summit, convening November 5–6, you will learn from experienced and successful AdCom members, Industry Representatives, and the FDA on how to define your team’s core presentations, establish key messaging, uncover the backgrounds of FDA Advisory Committee members, and examine the overall Advisory Committee process.

Preparation for the FDA Advisory Committee is a process that should parallel product development. Since there has already been significant time and money invested in to develop the product in a review, manufacturers must be able to support their product in this highly visible, high-stakes public meeting. One of the most challenging experiences for any team to experience is appearing before an FDA Advisory Committee, which is why it is important to be prepared for all and any questions regarding the product in review.

At ExL’s FDA Advisory Committees Strategy Summit, you will receive a better understanding of how to enhance the Likelihood of a Successful Panel Meeting with the FDA through strategic planning.


Featured Sessions

Aden Asefa, MPH, Regulatory Health Project Manager at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, will address panel member preparation and the expectations from the FDA and industry, as well as provide recent examples of FDA decisions that were based on recommendations from panel meetings.

Dr. Elizabeth Garner, Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President of Clinical Development at Agile Therapeutics, will assist your team to prepare their content and apply the scientific messaging needed to explain your products’ story.

Elijah Wreh, Regulatory Affairs Manager at Invacare Corporation; and Industry Representative at the FDA Advisory Committee Neurological Devices Panel, will examine the FDA Advisory Committee selection process to understand the backgrounds of Advisory Committee members.
