Rear Admiral Anne Schuchat, M.D., is the current Interim Deputy Director for Science and Public Health Program at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Anne Schuchat graduated with highest honors from Swarthmore College and with honors from Dartmouth Medical School. She served as resident and chief resident in internal medicine at New York University′s Manhattan VA Hospital before beginning her public health career at CDC as an Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) officer in NCID.

As Interim Deputy Director for Science and Public Health Program, Dr. Schuchat is focused on ensuring strong science and programmatic approaches are effectively integrated into planning across the agency. She has emphasized prevention of infectious diseases in children. Her emphasis on perinatal group B streptococcal disease prevention has led to an 80 percent reduction in newborn infections and a 75 percent narrowing of racial disparities among sufferers of this infectious disease. She has been instrumental in pre- and post-licensure evaluations of conjugate vaccines for bacterial meningitis and pneumonia and in accelerating availability of these new vaccines in resource-poor countries through WHO and the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization.
