I would like to thank him for serving as Acting Director for the last 11 months.

Philip LoBue, MD Dr. LoBue's years of working in TB control, his scientific acumen, and his management and leadership experience are invaluable assets for CDC and those working in the field of TB elimination. He began his CDC career in 1999 as a Field Medical Officer and Epidemiologist assigned to the San Diego County TB Control Program, moving in 2004 to Atlanta to become Chief of the Medical Consultation Team of DTBE. Since 2006, he has held the position of Associate Director for Science for the Division, prior to serving as the Acting Director of the Division. Dr. LoBue has been recognized for his leadership, receiving CDC’s Award for Excellence in Surveillance and Health Monitoring and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Award for Outstanding Service.
