Message from the FDA: Reorganization of the Office of Oncology Drug Products (OODP)
As part of recent organizational changes within the Office of New Drugs, the Office of Oncology Drug Products (OODP) is planning a reorganization that reaffirms our commitment to improve the efficiency and consistency of oncology product development and review.
OODP has been comprised of three divisions–the Division of Oncology Drug Products, the Division of Biologic Oncology Products, and the Division of Hematology Products. The proposed reorganization–expected to take effect in 2011–will change our name from OODP to the Office of Hematology and Oncology Products (OHOP) and create a new structure with four divisions:
The Oncology Program, which coordinates oncology activities across FDA Centers and with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and other cancer-related organizations, will remain in the Immediate Office.
Key features of the reorganization:
With these organizational enhancements, we will be in the best position to meet the needs of an increasingly more complex area of drug development and medicine.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS/ NOMINATIONS
Active Living Research 2011 Annual Conference
Active Living Research invites abstracts to be considered for presentation at the 2011 Annual Conference on February 22-24, 2011, in San Diego, CA. The theme of the 2011 conference, "Partnerships for Progress in Active Living: From Research to Action," recognizes the importance of engaging experts from multiple disciplines to address critical public health issues, especially active living and obesity.
ALR strongly encourages abstracts related to the conference theme and abstracts on research that generally informs strategies for increasing physical activity among children, especially those at greatest risk for obesity–Black, Latino, American Indian, Asian/Pacific Islander children and youths living in lower-income communities. Abstracts describing research results on all topics related to active living policies and environments also are welcome, as are abstracts with an international focus.
Active Living Research fourth annual "Translating Research to Policy Award"
Active Living Research is announcing the fourth annual "Translating Research to Policy Award" to recognize innovative teams or individuals representing research, policy and/or advocacy who have had success in catalyzing policy or environmental change of relevance to youth physical activity, sedentary behavior and obesity prevention. Our goal is to celebrate achievements, understand how success occurs, and share these stories so others will be inspired to use or adapt new and effective approaches. Nominations can illustrate the impact of research at any policy-making level, including schools, private sector organizations and local, state or federal government agencies or institutions. Examples of settings and topics that are relevant include schools, public or private recreation facilities, transportation, community built environment and the social/media environment.
