FDA Changes Leadership

Directors moved at Food & Drug Administration.

Food & Drug Administration commissioner Dr. Andrew C. von Eschenbach announced two major changes in the agency's senior leadership team. Effective Jan. 7, Dr. Stephen Sundlof moved from director of FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine to director of FDA's Center for Food Safety & Applied Nutrition. Dr. Bernadette Dunham, deputy director of CVM, will assume directorship of CVM, also effective Jan. 7.

Sundlof has served as director of CVM for more than a decade. In that capacity, with his background as a toxicologist, he has overseen the regulation of feed, including food additives and drugs intended for animals. He has served on numerous domestic and international committees on food safety, and also provided significant input into the development of FDA's Food Protection Plan issued in November 2007, a strategic and comprehensive approach to improve food safety and defense in the U.S.

As deputy director of CVM since 2006, Dunham has played a critical role in coordinating and establishing the center's policy in research, management, scientific evaluation, compliance and surveillance. Dunham also was the director for CVM's Office of Minor Use & Minor Species Animal Drug Development, the office that oversees drug development for minor species such as zoo animals, ornamental fish, parrots, ferrets, guinea pigs, sheep, goats, catfish and honeybees.
