FDA’s Dr. Janet Woodcock Honored by Alliance for Aging Research for Improving Healthy Aging
The Alliance for Aging Research has chosen Janet Woodcock, M.D., FDA’s deputy commissioner and chief medical officer, as the Indispensable Person of the Year for Health Research, for effective, innovative and ethical leadership.
Dr. Woodcock leads FDA’s Critical Path Initiative, which is designed to improve the scientific bases for developing, evaluating, and manufacturing FDA-regulated products. In addition, she serves as the point person for a team of FDA scientists and policymakers who have been working on strategies to improve drug safety monitoring and the development pathway for treatments of disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease that are associated with aging.
The Alliance presented the awards at its 14th Annual Bipartisan Congressional Awards Dinner earlier this month in Washington, DC.
A prominent FDA scientist and executive, Dr. Woodcock has received numerous awards, including a Presidential Rank Meritorious Executive Award and other scientific awards, as well as six Special Citations from FDA Commissioners.
The Alliance is a nonprofit organization that promotes scientific and medical research for healthier aging.
