We strongly applaud the bipartisan Senate vote in support of Dr. Robert Califf for Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Dr. Califf will bring tremendous scientific expertise and hands-on experience to the FDA. It’s critical for the FDA to have a Senate-confirmed leader to synthesize the lessons learned from COVID-19, deploy the benefits of real-world evidence, and in a myriad of other ways, endeavor to keep pace with rapidly evolving science.
We thank Dr. Janet Woodcock for her service as the FDA’s Acting Commissioner during a critical time for our nation. Her leadership and deep wealth of regulatory expertise were key to bringing about rapid pace interventions against the pandemic.
