About

About

Triangle CERSI is about synergy.

Together with the FDA, other CERSI centers, industry, academia, and the public, we advance regulatory science in design, practice, impact and public perception.

Our Consortium

The Triangle Center of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation (Triangle CERSI) is a partnership between University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) and Duke University (Duke) and involves collaboration with North Carolina State University (NCSU), North Carolina Central University (NCCU), and the Burroughs Welcome Fund. This CERSI further leverages additional organizations and industry partners in centrally located Research Triangle Park, NC, to provide the CERSI network with complimentary expertise and infrastructure to help the FDA address the full spectrum of current and evolving needs in regulatory science.

The CERSI Network

There are currently five CERSIs. The institutions were selected and awarded through a competitive process for a cooperative agreement under RFA-FD-23-004. Renewal awards were made to University of Maryland, Johns Hopkins University, Yale University in joint effort with Mayo Clinic and University of California at San Francisco in a joint effort with Stanford University. The Triangle CERSI is the newest awarded and launched on September 1, 2023.
