Dr Murray Lumpkin is the Deputy Director, Integrated Delivery and Lead for Global Regulatory Systems Initiatives at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation since January 2014. These initiatives are focused on working with partners such as World Health Organization, regulatory regionalization initiatives, and national regulatory authorities to make more efficient and effective (without sacrificing product quality, efficacy, or safety) the regulatory processes through which products must pass in order to be developed, legally marketed, and overseen appropriately after marketing authorization in low- and middle-income countries.

Prior to his appointment at the Gates Foundation, he was at the US FDA for 24 years, as Director of the Anti-infective Drugs Division, then Deputy Center Director at CDER, and finally for 11 years as Deputy Commissioner of US FDA for International Programs.
