FDA requests nominations for membership on its Science Board, which advises the commissioner on technical issues, regulatory science and research agendas, according to a Sept. 5 Federal Register notice. Send nominations of individuals knowledgeable in the fields of food safety, nutrition, pharmacology, nanotechnology and other scientific disciplines to FDA at firstname.lastname@example.org by Oct. 6. In May, FDA Commissioner Andrew von Eschenbach said he intends to expand the board from 11 to 21 members and double its annual meetings from two to four in response to a board report pointing to the agency's deficiencies in expertise and technology (2"The Tan Sheet" June 30, 2008, p. 12)
