Office of Immunology and Inflammation (OII)


The Office of Immunology and Inflammation (OII) consists of six review divisions: The Division of Dermatology and Dentistry (DDD), the Division of Gastroenterology (DG), the Division of Hepatology and Nutrition (DHN), the Division of Pulmonology, Allergy and Critical Care (DPACC), the Division of Rheumatology and Transplant Medicine (DRTM), and the Division of Pharm-Tox for Immunology and Inflammation (DPT-II). The Immediate office oversees the development, review, and regulation of applications for drug and biologic products reviewed in these divisions.

The staff of OII consists of highly trained physicians, scientists and regulatory project managers with expertise in gastroenterology, dermatology, dental,  hepatology and nutrition, metabolism, pulmonology, allergy and critical care, and rheumatology and transplant medicine, pharmacology/toxicology, and regulatory affairs. These professionals work with specialists in other CDER scientific disciplines such as statistics, clinical pharmacology, epidemiology, chemistry, and drug safety to collaboratively review data on new treatments. 

OII is committed to facilitating rapid development, review, and action on promising new therapies. Scientists within the office are working intensively on incorporating innovations in pharmacogenomics, bioinformatics, and clinical trial design into the drug development process.
