FDA Launches Online Membership Nomination Portal

The organization announced the launch of its new interactive portal for advisory committee membership nomination.

According to a news release from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the agency has launched its advisory committee membership nomination portal, an interactive online system that allows individuals to submit nominations for membership to any of FDA's 33 advisory committees. The portal allows nominees to submit their membership application through FDA's website, which creates a paperless process in which the FDA evaluates, accepts, and nominates qualified individuals for membership.

The online nomination portal works by securely storing all applicant information that then allows the FDA to "develop metrics for assessing the entire applicant pool to identify qualified candidates to fill specific vacancies on the advisory committees," according to the release. Nominations for industry reps and scientific members can be submitted by professional societies, consumer groups, and other interested persons. Candidates must then submit information on financial holdings, employment, research grants, and more.

FDA's advisory committees provide the FDA with expert advice on a range of scientific, policy, and technical issues.
