One of the aims of the Science Board, which is an FDA public advisory committee, is to keep the agency up to date with developments in the science field and to help it upgrade its scientific and research facilities to keep pace with these changes.
In line with this, next month’s meeting will involve a review of FDA's scientific information technology infrastructure modernization initiatives. The Science Board will hear from its subcommittees about plans to establish an additional subcommittee for the review of research at the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN).
The meeting, to be held on August 17 in Rockville, MD, will also include updates from the agency regarding the continued assessment of Bisphenol-A (BPA) in FDA-regulated products.
The meeting is open to the public, and FDA said it hopes to make additional background information available several days before the meeting.
