Congratulations on your new job! Couldn't be happier for you or for the American public who will truly benefit from your leadership at FDA. So excited about this, don't think there's anyone on the planet who could do the job better!!
All the best,
Dear Dr. Peterson
I have enjoyed reading your every letter like this since I joined the DCRI!!
My research in clinical trials and my current status as the Node PI of Mid Southern (Primary Care) Node of the National Drug Abuse Treatment Network has been enabled by DCRI.
Dr. Califf also helped me start my first primary care study and my first clinical trial by allowing me to leverage the many resources!
Today is indeed AN AMAZING DAY for Dr. Califf, for Duke, and for many Americans!
All the best
