Behind every breakthrough in public health are regulators, scientists, policy makers and organizations dedicated to safety, efficacy and accountability. The Reagan-Udall Foundation’s Innovations in Regulatory Science Awards recognize this dedication as well as the impact of their work on public health.

Each year, the Foundation presents awards in three areas: Leadership, Innovation, and Advocacy/Policy. The Leadership Award honors exemplary lifetime contributions and service in regulatory science and public health. The Innovation Award recognizes individuals or organizations that have made particularly groundbreaking contributions to regulatory science or policy to improve public health. The Advocacy/Policy Award honors individuals or organizations that have achieved impactful policy advancements to improve public health through exceptional advocacy.
