FDA Advisory Committee
- Patient Representative program
Comment on Proposed Regulations and Submit Petitions
any citizen may submit a petition on any matter of concern
under the jurisdiction of FDA
IRB - Human Subject Protections
Participating in IRBs will let you participate
in trial design in order to protect trial subjects and maximize
participation as well.
NCI program: CARRA
As a CARRA member, you may be selected to
participate in a CARRA activity. Your participation is important
because you bring the unique perspective of someone
affected by cancer and represent others also affected by the disease.
Consumer Representative in Advisory Committees
The Food and Drug Administration seeks input
from consumers on medical and scientific issues. A key method of
ensuring that FDA gets consumers' points of view is by including
consumer representatives on Agency advisory committees.
