Julie Gerberding, who until this year was the director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was named president of Merck’s vaccine division. Gerberding, who led the CDC from 2002 to 2009, stepped down when President Barack Obama took office this year (see statement). The move comes a few months after Margie McGlynn, a former sales and marketing exec, retired as Merck’s vaccines chief.
