Work for the FDA!


submit by troym; comments by blogger jgl

Troy sent along this article about the labs that serve the Food & Drug Administration. This is an agency that could be easily forgotten by forensic graduates looking for employment. I'm guessing that available positions would be posted on usajobs.com, a good site to hit in the job hunt.

The Food & Drug Administration has investigated many incidents involving accidental or intentional contamination of food and pharmaceuticals. Two units that are key to such investigations are the Forensic Chemistry Center (FCC) and the National Center for Toxicological Research (NCTR).

FCC in Cincinnati is FDA's crime lab and it supports the agency's Office of Criminal Investigation (OCI), which investigates criminal violations of the Food, Drug & Cosmetic Act such as product tampering or pharmaceutical counterfeiting. OCI also participates in law enforcement and intelligence efforts related to threats associated with FDA-regulated products.

In addition to participating in criminal cases, FCC staff also assist in problem solving related to FDA's regulatory work. One example of this type of work is the 2007 pet food contamination case, says R. Duane Satzger, director of FCC's organic branch.

I am a forensics professional, currently morgue supervisor in Naples, FL. My formal training=forensic photography at Miami-Dade Medical Examiner's Office (6 month internship). That was back in the good ol' days of 2001. Been at D20, FL since 2002. Still lovin it.

I keep a weblog about SOME of the goings-on at the office at http://tamingoftheband-aid.blogspot.com

The forensics-oriented material is under the name Ed E. O'Path. There's more Ed E. O'Path material at http://middle-grey.blogspot.com

I hope this is not dumped as SPAM.

You guys have been linked at my site(s).

You can avoid the bullsh*t SPAM in your comments section by placing a "CAPTCHA" function. Blogger has it easily available. Then again, if you really dig advertising for penis growth pills, who could fault you?

I'm just sayin'.

It seems like they have been working nice there and it is good to work for them. They have investigated many cases and doing good job. I think it will be a good opportunity for the people to get in here and work for FDA.
