Weinberg Honored for Outstanding Research
Dr. Sandy Weinberg (Sandy Springs), a Clayton State University associate professor of Healthcare Management, recently traveled to Brazil to speak with the National Institute of Science and Technology (INCT) and the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA); the Brazilian equivalent to the National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Weinberg spoke at the Universidade Federal De Pernambuco about quality control and regulation in the pharmaceutical industry and received the prestigious Outstanding Research Award from the two agencies. Weinberg has written 16 books regarding regulatory and compliance issues with pharmaceutical, device, and biologics companies.
Weinberg’s most recent book, “Cost Contained Regulatory Compliance” was published recently by Wiley. The description on Wiley’s website is as follows:
“This book guides the reader through FDA regulation guidelines and outlines a comprehensive strategy for cost reduction in regulatory affairs and compliance. This book explains six strategies to cost-effectively comply with FDA regulations while maintaining product safety and improving public access through cost controls. It provides useful and practical guidance through industry case studies from pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device industries.”
Weinberg admits there were some challenges in writing the book.
“A major challenge was distilling experiences with global companies, USFDA and international equivalent agencies to identify strategies that have proven successful,” he says.
Despite the challenge, Weinberg was rewarded in having an opportunity to review career-long files of what worked, what didn't.
