Regulatory Science to 2025 - Shaping the future


As science and technology advance and bring potential new treatments and diagnostic tools, regulatory science must advance in tandem so that these can be correctly, rigorously and efficiently assessed. Examples of the transformational research that is having a significant impact on the regulatory science agenda include cell-based therapies, genomics-based diagnostics, drug-device combinations, novel clinical trial design, predictive toxicology, real-world evidence, and ‘big data’ and artificial intelligence.
