21 21 CDER Science Projects and Publications Databases The CDER Science Projects Database contains basic information about all CDER science and research projects and programs in a searchable format. The database was developed as an information and research management tool. It provides an opportunity for each investigator to clearly communicate the rationale, impact and relevance of their project/program to a broad audience. All CDER science projects and programs must have an entry in the Research Database. If your project is not in the database, please contact your Division Director. They can contact Jorge Urrutia. The CDER Publications Database captures publications and abstracts from the entire FDA. CDER publications resulting from research projects in CDER link back to the corresponding project description in the CDER Science Project Database. Please check that your publications are in the database by performing a Custom Search using your last name in the Author field. If some of your publications are missing, please click on Add Entry link on the Publications Database page to enter them, or the citations to Tom Maudru.
