Call Me Maybe: Recent Challenges in FDA Communications

Focusing primarily on the medical device arena, this lunchtime seminar draws on recent real-life situations to provide lessons in optimizing communications with FDA, whether the topic is getting a device into clinical trials, into the market, or into the US. Get advice on ways you can optimize your FDA communications for more successful interactions while reviewing highlights of the new FDA Safety and Innovation Act and the proposed Unique Device Identification regulation.

She obtained approval of a pediatric indication for a drug/device combination product encompassing a complex delivery system. In addition to her depth of medical device regulatory experience, Amy has experience in Financial Disclosure regulation, the Prescription Drug Marketing Act, advertising and promotion and face-to-face meetings with FDA on submissions.
