A thousand new regulators
FDA will add 1,163 new employees to its staff by the end of the fiscal year, according to the agency. One thousand and five already are on board and 158 are due to report by Sept. 28. Another 160 candidates have accepted offers but are still undergoing clearance and related security processes, FDA says. The new hires, the result of a staffing initiative launched in the spring, will increase agency personnel to authorized levels (1"The Pink Sheet," May 5, 2008, p. 7). More than 850 of the new staff are in scientific or medical professions
