Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb is leaving his post as the nation’s top health regulator at the Commissioner after two years in the role.

Gottlieb, who’s waged a pitched battle against teen smoking in recent months, is resigning to spend more time with his family, people close to Gottlieb said Tuesday.

The physician has been commuting from his home in Westport, Connecticut, where he has a wife and three young daughters, the people said. His successor hasn’t been named yet, they said.
