Hamburg ushered in era of cooperation at FDA

FasterCures SmartBrief | Mar 03, 2015

Margaret Hamburg ran the FDA with a CEO's vision, a scientist's brain and a doctor's empathy, along with the thick skin of a rhinoceros and the heart of a public servant, writes Luke Timmerman. In her six years as commissioner, she turned around the agency, accelerating new drug reviews and approvals, fighting for budget increases, standing up for science, implementing new technologies in precision medicine and encouraging cooperation. "Her style was open and deliberate. That was part of the solution to getting industry to say, 'We're in this together, let's make it work better.' She listened and took the time," said FasterCures Executive Director Margaret Anderson. Timmerman Report (subscription required) (03/02)
