Collaborating Centers of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation

The Johns Hopkins–FDA Collaborating Center of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation (CERSI) is intended to ensure the FDA remains a standard-bearer in regulatory science. CERSI leverages the geographic proximity and extensive relationship between our institutions and uses this as a foundation to develop new training opportunities and to promote a programmatic focus on three priority areas for the agency: improving clinical studies and evaluation, strengthening the social and behavioral sciences to support informed decisions, and developing a new prevention-focused food safety system. 

In addition to a strong foundation of collaboration with the Agency, our partnership also has other strengths, including: internationally renowned scholarship in regulatory science; innovative training through online platforms harnessing modern technologies; a nimble and organic operational approach; and the potential for self-sustaining programs that will continue to serve the FDA’s strategic mission beyond the time frame of the project.
