How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the FDA

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) plays an important role in American health care and in the development of new ways to combating disease. However, the public and researchers often sees their activities as opaque and arcane.

In this webinar, we will demystify the process of drug development and then gaining FDA approval. As part of the presentation, Dr. Randy Goff will describe his experience in the field of drug discovery and the process of obtaining FDA approval for Mylotarg, an innovative anti-cancer drug.
