Externally-led Patient-Focused Drug Development Hearing: October 29, 2018

CFRI’s PFDD meeting on cystic fibrosis (CF) will integrate the patient voice into the drug development and review process during a one-day live streamed meeting of individuals with CF, parents/caregivers of those with CF, CF clinicians, and FDA representatives, during which the patient voice and perspective will be shared and expanded upon in relation to the disease, current therapies and future therapies

The PFDD meeting on CF provides a timely and necessary opportunity to ensure that the experience of people with CF is incorporated in a collaborative manner during benefit-risk decisions, and constructively build upon previous interactions between the FDA and the CF patient community.

The meeting will be held Monday, October 29, 2018, from 8:30 am – 3:30 pm at the College Park Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in Hyattsville, Maryland.

Sponsorship opportunities are available; levels range from $2,500 – $27,500. For information contact Tony Adessa at
