Navigating the FDA's EUA Process for Diagnostics in the Present and Future: A Stakeholder Panel Discussion

GenomeWebinar

As cases of COVID-19 continued to grow this spring and summer in the US, so too did the number of Emergency Use Authorizations from the FDA for clinical diagnostic tests aimed at detecting current and past infections. The agency's policies for granting EUAs for both molecular and antibody tests evolved over time as more was learned about SARS-CoV-2 and its spread, and diagnostics firms and labs needed to adapt to these changes.

Dr. Elizabeth Hillebrenner, associate director for scientific and regulatory programs at the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health, will kick off this virtual roundtable with an overview of the EUA program, how it evolved, and how lessons learned during the current pandemic may shape future policies and actions by the FDA. She will then take part in a panel discussion that will include a variety of stakeholders from the diagnostics and clinical lab industries. Panelists will include Dr. Robert Boorstein, Medical Director of Lenco Diagnostic Laboratories; Danelle Miller, VP, Global Regulatory Policy and Intelligence for Roche Diagnostics; Dr. Jeffrey Klausner, Professor of Medicine and Public Health at UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine and Fielding School of Public Health; and Gail Javitt, Director at Hyman, Phelps & McNamara.
