Did you know that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates products that account for roughly 25% of the U.S. economy? That’s right: The Agency reviews and approves a lot more than drugs and vaccines. Its purview extends to medical devices, dietary supplements, foods, and more—and it’s constantly monitoring for their potential health risks to the public.
PrecisionFDA, a secure, cloud-based platform that aids the study and analyses of large biological datasets, is helping to inform big data analyses by hosting crowdsourced data science challenges.
If you are interested in learning more about precisionFDA’s mission and how they help monitor FDA regulated products, you can virtually attend the next Federal Crowdsourcing Webinar Series: A precisionFDA Strike for Public Health, hosted by Challenge.gov and Digital.gov on May 12th. Event participants will learn how crowdsourced challenges are helping the FDA better understand evolving areas of science around large biological data sets and apply that understanding to inform regulatory science.
