Federal leadership and key stakeholders came together on September 28. 2021, for the virtual FDA public workshop “COVID-19 Lessons Learned: Clinical Evaluation of Therapeutics.” The event disseminated findings from the Federal COVID-19 Response or Countermeasures Acceleration Groups (formerly known as Operation Warp Speed) to bring relevant therapeutics to use in the next public health emergency.

Presenters distilled learnings from months of interviews, discussions, and materials review into actionable recommendations to enhance scoping, prioritizing, and communicating about research activities in a public health emergency setting.
