28th Annual FDA Boot Camp Boston

Basic training in core regulatory concepts for life sciences lawyers, business executives, scientists, and policy analysts

Wednesday, September 21 to Friday, September 23, 2016
Omni Parker House, Boston, MA


Now in its 28th iteration, FDA Boot Camp is the premier event that will provide you with the ultimate roadmap to the complicated landscape of FDA regulatory law

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND: This year’s FDA Boot Camp has been designed to not only provide you with the essential background in FDA regulatory law, but also to provide key sessions that show you how to apply the regulatory knowledge to situations you encounter in real life. Highlights of this year’s program include the “Ripped from the Headlines” sessions that will update you on key developments in the FDA regulatory bar, and “The Marketing Pendulum Has Swung” which will focus on case studies analyzing offlabel civil and criminal enforcement activity.

ACI’s FDA Boot Camp has been designed by leading regulatory attorneys to give professionals that work in conjunction with the pharmaceutical, biologics, and medical devices industries—such as products or patent litigators, as well as patent prosecutors, industry in-house counsel, and life sciences investment and securities experts—a strong working knowledge of core FDA competencies.

A distinguished faculty of top FDA regulatory experts—a “Who’s Who of the FDA Bar”—will share their knowledge and give you critical insights on:

  • The organization, jurisdiction, functions, and operations of the FDA
  • The essentials of the approval process for drugs, biologics, and devices, including:
    • NDAs
    • BLAs
    • OTC Approval
    • INDs - 510(k) submissions
    • PMA process
  • Clinical trials for drugs and biologics and the clearance process for devices
  • The classification of devices and the concept of “risk-based” classification
  • The role of the Hatch-Waxman Act in the patenting of drugs and biologics
  • Labeling in the drug and biologics approval process
  • cGMPs and other manufacturing concerns relative to products liability
  • Proactive adverse events monitoring and signal detection
  • Recalls, product withdrawals, and FDA oversight authority
