Meet the Faces behind FDA Science

Meet the Faces behind FDA Science

Every day FDA scientists carry out scientific research and regulatory actions that have a profound impact on the health and well-being of all Americans. They work hard to make sure that the foods Americans eat are safe and healthy, and that the medical and veterinary products they use are safe and effective. FDA scientists also use their expertise to promote public health and foster therapeutic innovations. Did you know that FDA-regulated products account for 20 cents of every dollar that American consumers spend? 

As a science-based regulatory agency whose mission continues to expand in scope and complexity, FDA needs top scientific talent from a broad range of disciplines to conduct its work.

The FDA scientists highlighted in this section talk about their passion for the work they do, the Agency's pioneering regulatory science culture and opportunities for professional growth, and why they love working at FDA.
