Public Workshop- Third Party Governance of Industry-Sponsored Tobacco Product Research
Wednesday, February 13, 2013
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
We want to make sure you are aware of a public workshop that
FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products will be hosting March 19-20, 2013.
The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the
recommendation in the Institute of Medicine’s report, "Scientific Standards for
Studies on Modified Risk Tobacco Products,” that sponsors of Modified Risk
Tobacco Product (MRTP) applications use independent third parties to undertake
one or more key functions in tobacco product research (third party
governance). FDA is also considering third party governance as it relates
more generally to tobacco research. Our goal is to receive input from
interested stakeholders regarding features from existing third party governance
models that may be applicable to tobacco product research.
CTP is seeking panelists to participate in this public
workshop, the first in the Facilitated Dialogue Series. Nomination of
