Woman looking at medication
As part of the Take Time to Care Program, the Office of Women’s Health (OWH), one of many offices in the Office of the Chief Scientist (OSC), completed the Encouraging Women to Utilize FDA Safe Medication Use Resources Key Project. OWH conducts outreach to diverse populations of women including pregnant women, college women, and minority women. In FY16, OWH disseminated 3.5 million fact sheets, consumer updates, and medication booklets on safe medication use and other FDA regulated products and launched a new Tips for Caregiverswebpage that provides female caregivers with tips and links to FDA resources.
For more information about OWH, please visit the OCS Dashboard and the Take Time to Care Program Key Project for the activities that are planned for FY17.

  • NCTR Dashboard: The Division of Bioinformatics and Biostatistics (DBB) is now working on its new Sequencing Quality Control Phase II Key Project. The primary objective of this project is to develop standard analysis protocols and quality control metrics for fit-for-purpose use of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data to enhance regulatory science research and precision medicine. The project consists of three specific aims to:
1. Develop quality metrics for reproducible NGS results from both whole genome sequencing (WGS) and targeted gene sequencing (TGS);
2. Benchmark bioinformatics methods for WGS and TGS towards the development of standard data analysis protocols; and
3. Assess the joint effects of key parameters affecting NGS results and interpretation for clinical application.
