Emerging Issues in Food and Drug Law: Implementation of FDASIA
555 Twelfth Street, NW
Thank you for your interest in the "Emerging Issues in Food and Drug Law Conference," scheduled for April 17, 2013 in Washington, D.C. This conference is an effort by the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law and School of Pharmacy, with sponsorship from Arnold & Porter LLP, to provide a forum for professionals in the food and drug law arena to discuss important legal and policy issues. The timing of this conference will be just over nine months after the enactment of the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act (FDASIA) and follows the more recent spotlight on FDA involvement in drug shortages and its regulation of pharmacy compounding. A listing of session topics can be found under the "Agenda" tab on the event website.
The UM Carey School of Law is a national leader in health law, and our conferences are integral tools in expanding practical knowledge on important health law topics and encouraging scholarship on cutting-edge issues. Our Law and Health Care Program combines education and research on emerging medical, health policy and legal matters, addressing health law issues from both legal and interdisciplinary perspectives. Our nationally-recognized Journal of Health Care Law & Policy serves as a forum for interdisciplinary discussion of leading issues in health law, medicine, and health policy. The UM Carey School of Law also boasts strong intraprofessional collaboration with the UM School of Pharmacy and its Center for Drugs and Public Policy. Morning refreshments and working lunch will be provided. There is no fee to attend this conference, but registration is required.
