Dr. Joseph Gulfo on FDA Safety and Effectiveness

In his insightful 10x Medical Device Conference talk, Dr. Joseph Gulfo explained the official FDA mandate: To promote the public health by PROMPTLY and EFFICIENTLY reviewing clinical research and taking appropriate action on the marketing of regulated products in a timely manner… protect[ing] the public health by ensuring… reasonable assurance of the safety and effectiveness of devices intended for human use….
