FDA Commissioner Andrew C. von Eschenbach, MD, recently received the American Association for Cancer Research Distinguished Service Award for exemplary leadership as director of the National Cancer Institute during a time of flourishing scientific and technological advances with gradually diminishing resources.

During his 5-year tenure, Dr. von Eschenbach fostered new and productive interagency agreements among FDA and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, which streamlined the development and delivery of new medicines to seriously ill patients with cancer, the association said.

A nationally recognized urologic surgeon and oncologist, founding member of C-Change, former president-elect of the American Cancer Society, and three-time cancer survivor, Dr. von Eschenbach has made an impact on the fight against cancer that extends well beyond the clinical and academic communities.
