The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today released the final version of a strategic priorities document outlining the goals that will guide the agency and its 12,000 employees through 2015, FDA’s “Strategic Priorities 2011 – 2015: Responding to the Public Health Challenges of the 21st Century” (PDF).

It conveys the FDA's vision for the future, by mentioning:
  • a modernized field of regulatory science that draws on innovations in science and technology to help ensure the safety and effectiveness of medical products throughout their life cycles

The document is organized into four major sections:
1.0 Introduction
