Dr Julie Gerberding served as the director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for then to be rewarded with a position as executive vice president for strategic communications, global public policy & population health and the chief patient officer at Merck.[1]

Gerberding became a nationally-recognized figure during the 2001 anthrax attacks in the United States. As the Acting Deputy Director of National Center for Infectious Diseases, Gerberding was a prominent spokeswoman for the CDC during daily briefings regarding the attacks and aftermath.[2]

AIDS research

During her medical residency at San Francisco General Hospital, Gerberding treated some of the first hospitalized AIDS patients.[3] She completed several studies on the risks of HIV to healthcare workers, created guidelines to prevent their infections, and established a treatment and research unit focused on HIV/AIDS cases among the urban poor.[4]

Revolving Door

Merck’s Gardasil vaccine was approved and mandated by the CDC when Gerberding was the director of the CDC. She went from about $172,000 in salary to around $25 million in compensation from stock sales at Merck and CERN.[5]

In late 2009, Gerberding became president of Big Pharma corporation Merck's vaccines division[6]. According to form 4 SEC filings, between 2015 and 2020, Gerberding sold $23,968,010 in Merck stock.[7] Since July of 2016, she has served on the board of directors at the Cerner Corporation, a health care technology corporation.[[8] On July 17, 2020 she sold 36,285 units of CERN stock worth $2,902,800.
