Center of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation (M-CERSI)
At the Heart of Biotech
The University of Maryland Center of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation is located within an hour’s drive from many of the nation’s top bioscience research forces—including the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the University of Maryland School of Medicine.
Pediatric Ontogeny Workshop
The "Pediatric Ontogeny: Ready for Incorporation into Modeling in Pediatric Drug Development?" has been rescheduled to May 16th and will take place at the NIH Natcher Conference Center.
A Part of History
Founded in 1841, the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy is one of seven professional schools and a graduate school located at the University of Maryland, a thriving center for life sciences research and community service.
Download presentations, audio, and video from past M-CERSI workshops, such as the Predictive Immunogenicity for Better Clinical Outcomes workshop, or the Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) workshop.
Regulatory Science Talent
M-CERSI celebrates its seventh annual "America's Got Regulatory Science Talent" competition. First place went to a team of third-year students at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy who set out to develop new guidelines to establish ownership rights for data collected by wearable and implantable health care devices.
