CDER's Emerging Technology Team
The newly formed Emerging Technology Team (ETT) draws membership from all CDER quality review, research and inspection functions, including Office of Biotechnology Products. The goal of the ETT is provide a primary point of contact for external inquiries regarding emerging technology in pharmaceutical and biotechnology manufacturing and quality control. The ETT will partner with review offices in a cross-functional manner and identify regulatory strategy and resolve roadblocks to new technologies relating to existing guidance, policy or practices related to review or inspection. The ETT’s initial focus will be innovation on novel products, manufacturing processes, or testing technologies or processes to be submitted in a BLA, NDA or ANDA. This talk will provide an update on ETT’s activities in 2015.
