Summary 
Generic drugs account for 89% of prescriptions dispensed in the United States and saved the US healthy system more than 1 trillion dollars in the past decade. Yet, there are scientific challenges that limit the availability of certain complex generic drugs, and some physicians and patients are not fully convinced about the substitutability of generic drugs.  

Intensive FDA intramural and extramural research efforts, as well as cross-office/center collaborations, were undertaken to promote the science related to generic drugs. This presentation will highlight significant advancements in understanding the science of equivalence and developing new tools for generic drug development and review, as well as efforts in enhancing public confidence on generic drugs. 

Speaker’s Bio
Dr. Wenlei Jiang is an expert pharmacologist and currently serves as a Senior Science Advisor in the Office of Research and Standards (ORS)/Office of Generic Drugs (OGD)/Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER). She is mainly responsible for coordinating post-market generic drug safety investigation, representing ORS on OGD’s new international harmonization activities, and developing opportunities for scientific outreach. Previously she served as the Acting Deputy Director of ORS, where she provided oversight on Generic Drug User Fee Act (GDUFA) regulatory science research programs. 
Her research interest has been focused on bioequivalence standard development for generic complex drug products containing nanomaterials, solid oral modified release drug products, narrow therapeutic index drugs, as well as post-market surveillance of generic drugs. She used to work in the Division of Chemistry, OGD to review the chemistry and manufacturing control (CMC) sections of ANDAs. 
Prior to joining FDA, she was at Novartis Pharmaceutical Corporation where her responsibilities included formulation development of conventional liquid and solid dosage forms, as well as advanced parenteral drug delivery systems. She received her PhD in Pharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Chemistry from The Ohio State University in 2001.
