Task Force on Research Specific to Pregnant Women and Lactating Women (PRGLAC)

June 24, 2020


In support of the Office of Personnel Management guidance to strengthen our efforts to protect the federal workforce to ensure continuity of operations, NIH is urging that all large meetings and symposia that are not mission critical and are scheduled to be held at NIH facilities or organized by NIH over the next 30 days either be held virtually using tele/videoconferencing services, postponed, or cancelled.

This meeting will be held as a virtual meeting only, using tele/videoconferencing services. There will be no in-person attendance.




The 21st Century Cures Act established PRGLAC to advise the Secretary of Health and Human Services regarding gaps in knowledge and research on safe and effective therapies for pregnant women and lactating women. For its next phase, the PRGLAC Task Force is tasked with providing guidance on implementation of the recommendations made in the 2018 PRGLAC Report to the Secretary.
