Biography:

Dr. McFarland, a former administrator with the Food and Drug Administration and current Chief Regulatory Officer of ARMI, in Manchester, NH

"I joined ARMI as its Chief Regulatory Officer effective May 1, 2017. My position at ARMI will allow me to apply my knowledge and experiences gained by over the last decade and half at FDA developing risk-based policy for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine (TE/RM) products, and broader interagency efforts to create an interlocking network of interagency activities to foster growth of basic and translational science to support maturation of the TE/RM from primarily discovery science toward a stage of commercial development through ARMI’s efforts to establish an industrial commons. This industrial commons will take the form of an institute within the Manufacturing USA network, with the aims to coalesce the field and provide a route for nascent product concepts to reach the marketplace. Bringing these products to the market will benefit critical U.S. public health needs and will provide the economic drivers needed to create new highly-skilled jobs. "
