Regulatory Bootcamp

Achieving any degree of regulatory fluency can be a long process that is most often acquired through painful trial and error while developing therapeutic products. BioFabConsulting offers a two-day Regulatory BootCamp designed to provide those with little or no experience in FDA regulations with a firm foundation in biologics/drug and medical device regulation. The course goes beyond timelines and regulations and emphasizes the rationale behind and strategy for FDA regulations. Bootcamps are taught by BioFabConsulting consultants with extensive experience on both sides of the regulatory curtain.

Initial consultations are free of charge to ARMI | BioFabUSA members, and are designed to assess a potential scope of your BioFabConsulting relationship.

To help ensure the most productive initial consultation, the client is encouraged to provide BioFabConsulting with a non-confidential “pre-read” document at least one week before the initial meeting is scheduled to occur. During this discussion, BioFabConsulting will propose an approach to addressing the client’s consultation, a scope of work and an estimated budget for the work proposed.

Initial, confidential consultations are free of charge to ARMI | BioFabUSA members.
