Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition Announces Staff Changes
Dr. Sundlof has been providing leadership at FDA for 16 years, including 14 years as the Director of the Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM).
Sundlof began his career in 1980 on the faculty of the University of Florida's College of Veterinary Medicine. His research interests in drug residues in livestock eventually led to interactions with the FDA, first as a member and later as the chair of the FDA’s Veterinary Medicine Advisory Committee. In 1994, he was named the CVM Director by FDA Commissioner David Kessler.
Sundlof will be starting a new training and development program in regulatory science in conjunction with the University of Minnesota and the Ohio State University. He will be designing a curriculum for certification and Master degrees drawing from key faculty across three large universities with strong public health programs, and from FDA subject matter experts. The programs will be designed especially for government employees and will offer a blend of science, policy, leadership, and nontechnical skills necessary to be successful in today's complex regulatory environment. Sundlof assumes these new duties on May 10, 2010.
Michael Landa, who has been Deputy Director for Regulatory Affairs at CFSAN since 2004 and began his FDA career in 1978 as Assistant Chief Counsel for Enforcement, Medical Devices and Veterinary Medicine, has agreed to serve as Acting Director. In addition, Roberta Wagner and Donald Kraemer, who have extensive experience at FDA, both at headquarters and in the field, will serve as Acting Deputy Directors.
Roberta Wagner, who joined FDA in 1987 as a Laboratory Analyst in the Baltimore district, has served as Director of CFSAN’s Office of Compliance since 2008. Donald Kraemer, who joined FDA in 1977 as a Consumer Safety Officer in the New Orleans district, has been Deputy Director of CFSAN’s Office of Food Safety since 2007. We are confident that Mike, Roberta and Don, with their extensive FDA experience, will ensure a smooth transition.
