Steve Hahn is very well regarded in the ASTRO community. He's a radiation oncologist who is also board-certified in medical oncology. He's been chair of rad onc at UPenn and a leader at MD Anderson. The radiation oncology community is excited for Steve as his nomination proceeds thru the regulatory process and we hope that he's confirmed as the next FDA Commissioner.
