( - As a physician and a scientist, I value being part of a rich, vibrant scientific community.  Since coming to FDA, I've been gratified to help lead and support a large group of talented, dedicated scientists who are passionate about what they do.  Because science is at the core of everything we do at FDA, the majority of FDA's staff are scientists, including engineers and medical professionals. A robust scientific workforce strongly engaged in the new sciences is critical to the success of FDA's mission to protect and promote the public health.

Unfortunately, I am often reminded that many people are unfamiliar with the cutting-edge research going on at FDA, and how important top-notch science and research are to our mission. Scientists, including those who may be exploring career options, are often unaware of the myriad scientific disciplines and expertise FDA must have to advance and apply the science required to assess the increasingly complex products we regulate. The outside world knows too little about the many innovative activities FDA scientists engage in, often with a wide range of collaborators, to keep our foods and medicines safe and help speed new therapies from bench to bedside.

So I'm delighted that we have now launched a comprehensive, one-stop web portal-FDA Science Careers and Scientific Professional Development-to showcase FDA's exciting, multidisciplinary scientific work force and culture and how important science is to our public health mission.
