The Foundation is governed by a board of directors that currently includes members from academia, consumer groups, the medical product and food industries, health care providers, and others. The FDA Commissioner and the Director of the National Institutes of Health serve as non-voting members of the Board. The statute prohibits government control of the foundation, and gives the Foundation no role in FDA’s regulatory process. 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.
