FDA Commissioner to Resign

Dr. Margaret A. Hamburg, commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, has decided to resign from her post sometime in March, according to government officials.

No replacement has been selected, but the FDA chief scientist, Dr. Stephen Ostroff, will temporarily fill the top post while waiting for congressional approval of the new agency commissioner, government officials said.

Dr. Hamburg couldn’t be reached for comment.
