Dr. Scott Gottlieb joins Pfizer's board of directors

Former FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb, MD, will join Pfizer's board of directors, according to CNBC. 

Dr. Gottlieb resigned from the FDA in April after running the agency for two years. Throughout his tenure he became known for cracking down on the e-cigarette industry and trying to get a handle on the opioid crisis.

Dr. Gottlieb will serve on two committees on Pfizer's board, regulatory and compliance and science and technology. 

"I'm honored to be joining the board of directors of #Pfizer and working together with more than 90,000 Pfizer colleagues to promote medical innovation, advance patient care, and secure access to better healthcare outcomes for families around the world," Dr. Gottlieb tweeted June 27.
