NTI board member Margaret A. Hamburg, MD, is joining NTI’s leadership to serve as interim vice president of the NTI | bio program in February. Hamburg, an internationally recognized leader in public health and medicine, replaces Beth Cameron, PhD, who has moved to the White House to rebuild the National Security Council’s Office of Global Health Security and Biodefense and advance the Biden Administration’s agenda on global health security.
Hamburg’s relationship with NTI goes back to its launch in 2001, when she was named as the organization’s founding senior scientist and biological program vice president. She went on to become commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration and foreign secretary of the National Academy of Medicine.
Hamburg joined NTI’s Board of Directors in 2017.
