The competition will be held at the University of Maryland Baltimore campus on Friday, January 30, 2015 from 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Students at the Baltimore and College Park campuses of the University of Maryland are invited to participate in a competition! The competition aims to promote student interest in regulatory science – the science of developing new tools, standards and approaches to assess the safety, efficacy, quality and performance of FDA-regulated products.
The competition involves each team to present a proposed solution to a current opportunity in regulatory science. There are numerous needs in regulatory science. Book-smart students should consult the scientific priority areas identified in the August 2011 FDA Strategic Plan for Regulatory Science.
The competition will be held at the University of Maryland Baltimore campus on Friday, Jan 30, 2015 from 10:30AM-12:00PM. A team can be either an individual or any number of students, although each team member has to contribute to the proposed solution or the presentation. The presentation must be 5 minutes in duration or less. It may be as simple as a verbal description or may utilize AV materials. Creativity is encouraged. Presentations should also aim to have high regulatory impact. Each presentation will be followed by 2 minutes of Q&A. Most importantly, lunch will be served to competing teams! Prizes will be awards for the top teams. By January 22, please email a completed Information Sheet to RegSciTalent@rx.umaryland.edu.
