While attending a GMO Rally in Kahului, Maui on March 30, 2014 I spoke to Dr. Lorrin Pang and questioned him about issues within the FDA science community. I was delighted to learn about this once confidential internal FDA study highlighted above. Although not the best news one could hope for it definitely shed light on the severity of the issue at hand.

The FDA scientists point out:

“The FDA cannot fulfill its mission because its scientific base has eroded and its scientific organizational structure is weak”.

“The FDA cannot fulfill its mission because its scientific workforce does not have sufficient capacity and capability”.

“The FDA cannot fulfill its mission because its information technology (IT) infrastructure is inadequate”.

“Finding: FDA does not have the capacity to ensure the safety of food for the nation”.

“Finding: The development of medical products based on “new science” cannot be adequately regulated by the FDA”.

“Finding: There is insufficient capacity in modeling, risk assessment and analysis”.

“Finding: The FDA science agenda lacks a coherent structure and vision, as well as effective coordination and prioritization”.

“Finding: The FDA has substantial recruitment and retention challenges”.

“Finding: The FDA has an inadequate and ineffective program for scientist performance”.

“Finding: The FDA has inadequate funding for professional development”.

“Finding: The FDA has not taken sufficient advantage of external and internal collaborations”.

“Finding: The Subcommittee believes that there is evidence of important, but slow, progress to improve information sciences and technology at the FDA over the past few years, yet significant gaps remain”.

“Finding: The FDA lacks the information science capability and information infrastructure to fulfill its regulatory mandate”.

“Finding: The FDA cannot provide the information infrastructure support to regulate products based on new science”.

“Finding: The FDA IT infrastructure is obsolete, unstable, and lacks sufficient controls to ensure continuity of operations or to provide effective disaster recovery services”.

“Finding: The IT workforce is insufficient and sub optimally organized”.

“Finding: The FDA has experienced decreasing resources in the face of increasing responsibilities”.

“Finding: Recommendations of excellent FDA reviews are seldom followed”.

Technology Test Pilot

In 1995 At Maui High Performance Computing Center The Maui Scientific Analysis & Visualization of the Environment Program was first incubated. I was the principal investigator of this independant research project which was a joint development between MHPCC, Silicon Graphics Computers (SGI) & NKO.ORG. Using SGI Cosmo Worlds software, we pioneered the development of Internet based 3D virtual reality GIS based interactive worlds. In 1996 with a network of seven high performance SGI workstations we pioneered development of live streaming MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, Real Video and QuickTime Streaming Server utilizing Kassenna MediaBase software. In Maui 2002 we pioneered and tested the first wireless live streaming video using laptop computers and Maui Sky Fiber's portable 3G wireless device. In Maui we pioneered live streaming video using usb modems from AT&T , Verizon as well as live streaming from iPhone 3 over 3G wireless networks. Today The Maui S.A.V.E. Program has diversified into storm tracking including visualization and analysis of large, memory-intensive gridded data sets such as the National Hurricane Center's wind speed probabilities. I volunteer my services to numerous Disaster Services Organizations. In June 2013 I returned from Hurricane Sandy deployment as a computer operations service associate with the Disaster Services Technology Group assisting as The American Red Cross migrated from a Disaster Response Operation to Long Term Recovery Operations. Pioneering the production/editing and Internet distribution of HD video to sites like Youtube.com and Vimeo.com we are shining the light towards environmental and peace efforts of humans across the globe. Since 1992 I have held the vision of establishing Maui, Hawaii as the environmental sciences center of the world. After His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet came to Maui This vision has expanded to establishing Maui as the environmental & peace center of the world.
