The FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS), which is a database that contains information on adverse event and medication error reports submitted to FDA which is designed to support the FDA's post-marketing safety surveillance program for drug and therapeutic biologic products. The health informatics structure of the FAERS database adheres to the international safety reporting guidance issued by the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH E2B1).

Designed and developed the solution for Center for Drug Evaluation and Research’s (CDER) Office of Surveillance and Epidemiology (OSE) to detect, evaluate, and act upon adverse effects reported to FDA proactively and ability to analyze and perform data mining on various dimensions e.g. Designated Medical Events, Medication Error, Adverse Event, Drug and Active Ingredient to detect a pattern.
