Global Summit on Regulatory Science

12th Annual Global Summit on Regulatory Science (GSRS22)

The Global Summit on Regulatory Science (GSRS) is an international conference for discussion of innovative technologies and partnerships to enhance translation of basic science into regulatory applications within the global context. The conference provides an opportunity for scientists from government, industry, and academic-research communities to objectively assess the utility of emerging technologies (such as nanotechnology, imaging, omics for translational science, personalized medicine, medical product safety, and food safety) for addressing regulatory-research questions and to discuss the best way to translate these technologies into real-world applications. The conference provides a platform where regulators, policy makers, and bench scientists from various countries can exchange views on how to develop, apply, and implement innovative methodologies into regulatory assessments in their respective countries, as well as harmonizing strategy via global collaboration. To engage the global community to address regulatory-science research and training needs, GSRS will be held in different countries on an annual basis. 

A manuscript titled “Emerging Technologies and Their Impact on Regulatory Science” that summarized the 2020 Global Summit on Regulatory Science (GSRS) was published in the journal Experimental Biology and Medicine. The publication represents many of the presentations made by scientists from NCTR and other research entities at the virtual GSRS20. There were 48 co-authors from 27 different research institutes representing 13 countries that contributed to the publication. The 13 countries include: 

Australia Canada China
Denmark EU France
Germany Japan Netherlands
Spain Switzerland UK


GSRS22 Summary Information
