"We are delighted Dr. Campbell will be at the helm of the foundation and, given his experience and background in biomedical, programmatic and donor development, are confident in his ability to take the organization to the next level," noted FNIH Chairman Dr. Charles A. Sanders.

FNIH supports the mission of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) through a wide range of initiatives that advance human health through public-private, collaborative partnerships. The foundation is a leader in identifying and addressing complex scientific and health issues, leveraging the diverse strengths of stakeholders in the science and research community, industry, academia, advocacy groups, non-governmental organizations, foundations and philanthropy.

"I am honored to serve as the new Executive Director of the foundation and look forward to working with the staff and colleagues of the foundation, NIH and the private sector to further the mission of NIH. In this era of scientific complexity, as research, development and health delivery costs continue to increase, efforts at making the critical scientific advances needed to improve public health in the U.S., and globally, require collaboration between the public and private sectors. I will look for new and creative ways to fulfill the mission of the foundation," said Campbell.

Prior to joining the foundation, Dr. Campbell served as the national vice president of research programs at the American Diabetes Association (ADA). Dr. Campbell joined the ADA in 2001 and in his capacity as national vice president, reported to both the ADA National Board of Directors and the ADA Research Foundation Board.
