Christina Webber, PhD
Staff Fellow, Partnerships to Advance Innovation and Regulatory Science (PAIRS) Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
Dr. Christina Webber is a Staff Fellow on the Partnerships to Advance Innovation and Regulatory Science (PAIRS) team in the Center for Devices and Radiological Health at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. She is currently working on efforts to promote inclusion of the patient voice in clinical investigations, especially those used in regulatory submissions, using patient-reported outcomes (PROs), patient-generated health data (PGD), and patient preference information (PPI). Dr. Webber has also initiated a project highlighting advances in regulatory science as a result of FDA’s Public Private Partnership with the Medical Device Innovation Consortium (MDIC). She began her time at the FDA as an AIMBE Scholar. Prior to joining the FDA, she completed her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering and Physiology at the Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. Her doctoral research focused on upper extremity biomechanics, characterizing the independent function in adults with traumatic brachial plexus injuries. Dr. Webber also holds an M.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering, specializing in biomechanics, from the University of Akron where she conducted lower extremity prosthetics research. She earned her B.S. in Bioengineering at the Pennsylvania State University.
