Course Description

This course offers extensive examination of the FDA’s regulations for biological products from preclinical testing to post-marketing regulatory requirements.  Specific ethical and regulatory considerations are discussed for various biological therapeutics such as gene therapy, vaccines, protein, antibodies and stem cells.  FDA’s regulation and policy updates for regenerative medicine including stem cell treatments, tissue engineering, and gene therapies are reviewed as well as updates on policies regarding regenerative combination products and devices.

Learning Objectives

  • Review preclinical and clinical development phases for biological products
  • Review FDA’s regulatory approvals process for biologics
  • Discuss FDA guidance documents and most recent policy updates for regenerative medicine and stem cell technologies
  • Review applicable Good Manufacturing and Good Laboratory Practices
  • Discuss product labeling, marketing, and advertising
  • Discuss post-licensure requirements

Who Should Attend

  • Project Managers and Team Leaders
  • Staff from Pharmaceutical Companies or Contract Research Organizations (CROs) involved in biologics trials
