With less than a year under his belt, Robert Califf, M.D. may be leaving the agency.

In a recent interview with The Washington Post, FDA Commissioner Robert Califf, M.D. said that President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team has not contacted him. Califf hasn’t even been head of the agency for a full year. It is rumored that if Califf leaves, Stephen Ostroff, M.D., deputy commissioner for foods and veterinary medicine, will step in (Ostroff has previously served as acting deputy commissioner of FDA). Ostroff stepped into his current role when Mike Taylor left FDA last June.
