USC Mann School Department of Regulatory and Quality Sciences adjunct professor, Roger Clemens, DrPH, has added five more publications to his running list of more than 80 manuscripts on nutrition, food science, and toxicology.

Research in regulatory science has far-reaching impacts ranging from patient-specific clinical effects to policy-wide public health implications. This is the case for Harlan Tsui’s research project, which won first place in the undergraduate/master’s level group at the 2022 Early Career Addiction Science Showcase.

A unique aspect of the Doctor of Regulatory and Sciences (DRSc) program at the USC Alfred E. Mann School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is the opportunity to travel throughout Europe or Asia to meet international regulators and learn about global regulatory strategy. Over the course of two weeks, the incoming Fall 2022 cohort visited Vietnam, Singapore, and Thailand, gaining valuable experience in presenting to a global audience and submerging themselves into the global aspects of regulatory science, all while developing a lasting bond that will endure throughout their journey as the next DRSc cohort.

Our doctoral graduates continue to use their academic capabilities! Be sure to check out the roadmap that Neal Storm and his colleagues have constructed in this paper. It describes how real-world data can be used instead of clinical bridging studies for registration in China. Read the article HERE.
