Science Advisory Board (SAB)

The SAB establishes the strategic direction and provides oversight for PDA's scientific and technical activities through the development of guidelines, technical reports, and technical bulletins and recommendations of other activities such as conferences or training courses.

Through its sister Advisory Boards, RAQAB and BioAB, the SAB, interacts with regulatory authorities by participating in the development of responses to regulatory draft and final guidance and directives.
