About FDA advisory committee meetings
Advisory committees provide FDA with independent advice from outside experts on issues related to human and veterinary drugs, vaccines and other biological products, medical devices, and food. In general, advisory committees include a chair, multiple members, plus a consumer, industry, and sometimes a patient representative. Additional experts with special knowledge may be added for individual committee meetings as needed. Recommendations from the advisory committee will be considered by the FDA in its review, but the FDA is not bound to follow them in determining whether to approve an application.
