FDA Student Scientific Research Day 2022

Organized By:
Office of Scientific Professional Development

Each year, FDA gives high school, college, and graduate students from different backgrounds and scientific disciplines the opportunity to train with mentors from across FDA on regulatory science research projects. In 2022, 54% of the students were females and 45% of the students were male.

Students are exposed to the broad expanse of regulatory science activities underway across the Agency as well as the range of scientific disciplines they call on.

Students also learn first-hand about the Agency’s domestic and global impact. The students are able to attend FDA regulatory science trainings that integrates science, law and policy. With this knowledge, the students are able to complete research projects.

After completing their FDA training program, students are encouraged to explore careers in public health and STEM.

Program Goals

  1. Recognize FDA student research and contributions to FDA.
  2. Present FDA student research on a public website annually.
  3. Support STEM education for students in FDA scientific priority areas.

This website highlights the importance of FDA student programs and the direct impact that their research projects have on advancing regulatory science at FDA.

The book posted on this site contains the abstracts from the 2022 FDA summer students. Among these participants, OSPD received 1 abstract from the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER), 43 submissions from the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER), 32 from the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH), 11 from the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN), 12 from the National Center for Toxicological Research (NCTR), and 1 from the Office of the Commissioner (OC).

There were 100 total abstract submissions.
