FDA-TRACK: Center for Drug Evaluation & Research - Policy and Science Development Dashboard

FDA-TRACK is FDA's agency-wide performance management program that monitors, analyzes and reports key performance data and projects for FDA's program offices and cross-cutting initiatives.

Researchers at CDER focus on developing the scientific knowledge, methods, tools, and standards needed to develop and evaluate new drugs.  In this effort, CDER also engages the wider research community in collaborative research to address critical gaps in our scientific knowledge that hinder drug development.  At public meetings, CDER staff obtain vital information from patients to identify and address unmet medical needs.  The new knowledge and capabilities obtained through these efforts, and the opportunities they provide to further drug development, are communicated to sponsors and the wider scientific community through scientific guidances, peer-reviewed publications, and a variety of formal and informal meetings, including scientific workshops and advisory committees.

For a complete list of CDER measures and their relevant FDA-TRACK dashboard, refer to the FDA-TRACK CDER Index.
