QUOTED. July 24, 2018. Scott Gottlieb.
Under a new organization plan, US FDA's six center directors – including the Center for Devices and Radiological Health's Jeff Shuren – will report directly to agency Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, rather than to a deputy commissioner. See what Gottlieb said about it here.
"Making sure I remain in close, regular contact with the center leadership [is a priority.] How we achieve our goals – the specific programs and policies that we plan, design, and seek to implement – must be shared concepts that are formulated by our professional staff. There’s no other way to be successful. It’s the men and women who work in the programs across our centers and offices who understand best how to achieve desired outcomes. And for me, the directors of our centers are the scientific leaders I turn to for this guidance." –Scott Gottlieb, commissioner, US FDA
