Description

U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) scientists, together with collaborators in academia, industry and government, develop technologies that support the evaluation, development, manufacture, and use of new tools, standards, and approaches to assess the safety, efficacy, quality, and performance of the products FDA regulates. The goal of the Technology Transfer Program is to ensure the full use of the results of FDA’s investment in research and development.

The program achieves this by engaging in collaborations to develop innovations and by transferring, through collaborations or by licenses, FDA technologies to organizations able to translate FDA’s innovations into new products that protect and advance public health.

FDA's Technology Transfer Program team helps move these technologies to the private sector by patenting and licensing these developments so that new products in areas like vaccines, food pathogen detection systems, counterfeit drug detection, and manufacturing can be created and made available on the market.

Mission

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for protecting the public health by ensuring the safety, efficacy, and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, and medical devices; and by ensuring the safety of our nation's food supply, cosmetics, and products that emit radiation.

FDA also has responsibility for regulating the manufacturing, marketing, and distribution of tobacco products to protect the public health and to reduce tobacco use by minors.

FDA is responsible for advancing the public health by helping to speed innovations that make medical products more effective, safer, and more affordable and by helping the public get the accurate, science-based information they need to use medical products and foods to maintain and improve their health.

FDA also plays a significant role in the Nation's counterterrorism capability. FDA fulfills this responsibility by ensuring the security of the food supply and by fostering development of medical products to respond to deliberate and naturally emerging public health threats.
