Conflict of Interest Policies

Congress created the Reagan-Udall Foundation for the FDA to support the mission of the FDA by identifying, funding, and supporting projects and programs that will help equip FDA staff with the highest caliber science and technology to enhance the safety and effectiveness of FDA-regulated projects. The Foundation will not participate in regulatory matters nor will it offer advice to FDA on policy matters. In addition, to support its independence and to maximize its scientific impact, the Foundation is implementing specific guidelines and procedures that identify and avoid potential bias—and appearances of such bias—and that provide a transparent process for individual and institutional decisions.

Our bylaws outline the conflict of interest policies that have been put into place to ensure that no one entity or organization has undue influence on Reagan-Udall Foundation initiatives and projects.
