    Procedure: On October 28, 2021, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:20 p.m., the 
meeting is open to the public. Interested persons may present data, 
information, or views, orally or in writing, on issues pending before 
the committee. Written submissions may be made to the contact person on 
or before October 13, 2021. Oral presentations from the public will be 
scheduled between approximately 11:20 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. Those 
individuals interested in making formal oral presentations should 
notify the contact person and submit a brief statement of the general 
nature of the evidence or arguments they wish to present, the names and 
addresses of proposed participants, and an indication of the 
approximate time requested to make their presentation on or before 
October 13, 2021. Time allotted for each presentation may be limited. 
If the number of registrants requesting to speak is greater than can be 
reasonably accommodated during the scheduled open public hearing

person will notify interested persons regarding their request to speak 
by October 14, 2021.
    Closed Committee Deliberations: On October 28, 2021, from 12:20 
p.m.to 1:20 p.m., the meeting will be closed to permit discussion where 
disclosure would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal 
privacy (5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(6)). The recommendations of the advisory 
committee regarding the progress of the individual investigator's 
research programs, along with other information, will be discussed 
during this session. We believe that public discussion of these 
recommendations on individual scientists would constitute an 
unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.

[email protected] or 301-796-4540.
    FDA welcomes the attendance of the public at its advisory committee 
meetings and will make every effort to accommodate persons with

Committee Act (5 U.S.C. app. 2).

    Dated: September 2, 2021.
