University of Wisconsin law professor R. Alta Charo has accepted the post of senior adviser in the Office of the Commissioner of the FDA.
According to the Chicago Trib, as of August 30th, Charo will be part of an elite group of policy advisors asked the tough questions on food and drug policy. Knowing Charo, she will be able to give the agency practical, sound solutions to some of the most complicated questions facing our nation regarding regulating the public’s health, food, and drugs in quite some time.
FDA is lucky to have one of the sharpest and most policy-oriented minds in bioethics in their inner circle. Congrats Alta!
