Obtain the guidance you need to master the difficult area of FDA regulatory law

For over 15 years, this conference has been the training grounds for life sciences attorneys and executives to master the fundamentals of FDA regulation. Recent news stories and high-profile trials concerning FDA-regulated products have made it clear that it is critical for attorneys who do not have regulatory practices and life sciences executives who deal with FDA regulated products to have a familiarity with these concepts.


ACI’s FDA Boot Camp returns for its 33rd iteration, with the continued intent of providing these individuals with an essential working knowledge of core FDA concepts, and real world examples that will help them to excel in their everyday practices.
