FDA CDRH To Host Virtual Workshop to Enhance Clinical Study Diversity



The FDA, in collaboration with the Clinical Trials Transformation Initiative (CTTI), is soliciting input on how to enhance clinical study diversity. They will be hosting a two-day virtual public workshop on increasing the enrollment of historically underrepresented populations in clinical studies and encouraging clinical study participation that reflects the prevalence of the disease or condition among demographic subgroups. The workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, November 29, and Thursday, November 30, 2023, from 10:00am-2:00pm ET.

During the event, drug sponsors, medical device sponsors, clinical research organizations, academia, patients and other stakeholders will share their experiences and approaches for increasing enrollment and encouraging participation of historically underrepresented populations in clinical studies.
