FDA to launch new website next week


16 April 2019 - In his first “all hands” speech at the US FDA White Oak campus on Tuesday, Acting Commissioner Ned Sharpless explained how he will pick up where Scott Gottlieb left off, and how next week, FDA will launch a new and improved FDA.gov website.

“The work done over the past year to get us here will provide a more accessible, user-friendly site for the public to learn about recalls, get product safety alerts, and other important information about the work we do to protect the public. This will be important,” Sharpless, the former director of the National Cancer Institute, said.

While praising FDA’s “strong institutional culture,” he also noted FDA’s challenges with respect to regulating new and rapidly changing products, including electronic nicotine devices, gene therapies and CBD oil.
