Subject: CDER Summer Research Participation Program 2019 - FDA
The Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) performs an essential
public health task by making sure that safe and effective drugs are available
to improve the health of people in the United States. As part of the U.S.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CDER regulates over-the-counter and
prescription drugs, including biological therapeutics and generic drugs.
CDER's mission is to protect and promote health by helping to ensure that
these human drugs are safe and effective for their intended use, that they
meet established quality standards, and that they are available to patients
who need them.
Participants will have an opportunity to gain a hands-on research experience
on a variety of regulatory research projects related to CDER's mission. The
program is designed for participants to engage with an expert mentor or
mentors during the summer to examine a question of interest related to those
projects within the placement office. Past projects have been related to:
drug metabolism, bio-statistical questions, in-vitro models for drug
toxicology, safety and efficacy, benefit-risk assessments, etc.
Both full-time and part-time appointments are typically available.
Anticipated start day is on or around May 20, 2019, but can be negotiated
with the mentor to commence on any Monday throughout the summer in order to
best align with school and/or vacation schedules.
