Under Kesslers leadership, the FDA has implemented the Medical Device Regulation (MDR) for user reporting and has completed a pilot program to develop a sentinel system for user reporting of adverse events called the Medical Device Surveillance Network (MeDSun). Kessler is in Seattle, nearing the end of his one-year position as a visiting scientist at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
