Dr. Mar­garet Ham­burg has been com­mis­sioner of the Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion since 2009, over­see­ing a bud­get of nearly $4 bil­lion last year. Since tak­ing of­fice, Ham­burg has launched ini­tia­tives re­lated to agency trans­parency, pub­lic health in­no­va­tions, food safety and to­bacco use. More re­cently, the FDA has faced chal­lenges that in­clude deal­ing with a deadly out­break of menin­gi­tis last year in the largely un­reg­u­lated drug com­pound­ing in­dus­try and over­sight of a new gen­er­a­tion of mo­bile health­care ap­pli­ca­tions.
