Cynthia Schnedar, director of CDER’s Office of Compliance, stepped down from her role on March 18 to take an unspecified private sector job, according to an email from CDER Director Janet Woodcock. Tom Cosgrove, who until recently served as director of the OC’s Office of Manufacturing Quality, assumed her position on April 4.
Woodcock said that Cosgrove “brings to the center’s leadership team a strong and proven background in drug quality and enforcement matters.”
Prior to heading the OMQ, Cosgrove led the OC’s Office of Unapproved Drugs and Labeling Compliance and worked in the Office of Chief Counsel as a litigator.
Francis Godwin, who most recently headed the Division of Drug Quality II within the OC, will serve as acting director of OMQ.
