The Burroughs Wellcome Fund (BWF) recognizes Regulatory Science as an important yet underfunded area of research. With this initiative, BWF aims to provide research support to stimulate innovation in this area. The program's focus is on providing support for academic researchers developing new methodologies or innovative approaches in regulatory science that will ultimately inform the regulatory decisions FDA and others make. This would necessarily draw upon the talents of individuals trained in mathematics, computer science, applied physics, medicine, engineering, toxicology, epidemiology, biostatistics, and systems pharmacology, to name a few.
