These fields have evolved drastically in recent years, leading FDA and others to call for regulatory clarification and reform. How should these advancements be regulated? What are the key considerations that should guide diagnostics regulatory reform moving forward? What has been the impact of recent guidance on the precision medicine industry? How might regulatory reform impact product development, manufacturing, and the use of diagnostics in clinical trials and treatment?
