Association of Graduate Regulatory Educators

About Us

The Association of Graduate Regulatory Educators developed from a series of meetings, initiated in 2010, that brought together leaders of programs offering graduate training in regulatory affairs and regulatory science.  From these meetings came the agreement to develop a formal organization with several goals:

  • to share best practices in regulatory education and promote the continued development of regulatory education as an academic discipline

  • to provide a forum for discussion of issues of mutual importance for educating stakeholders involved with commercializing products or services in the biomedical product and healthcare industries

  • to support the development of an organizational critical mass that is well-positioned to impact public policies that affect regulatory education in the US and internationally


AGRE is a place to meet and exchange ideas with other regulatory educators internationally.

AGRE is a forum for coordinating input on policy issues of importance to our educational programs.

AGRE is a group that develops and consolidates teaching materials to make your teaching more effective.

AGRE is a community for research on competencies, advancement of the discipline, and development of the profession.
