Animal Health Regulatory Affairs: Working Successfully with USDA and FDA

The USDA and FDA each regulate various products and biologics intended for animal use. This makes navigating the regulatory space a bit confusing for people new to the industry or who have worked in the area of human drug development. That's why we're refreshing our annual animal health regulatory affairs programming to include a three-day conference. By attending, you will learn how to navigate the USDA and FDA, representatives from both agencies will be participating, and get updates on the EPA. You'll also have an opportunity to network with subject matter experts, attend a professional skills course and practice what you've learned with a case study workshop.

Located at the K-State Olathe campus (22201 W. Innovation Drive, Olathe, KS 66061).
