DALLAS, Texas -- Susan G. Komen’s Board of Directors named Judith A. Salerno, M.D., M.S., as their President and CEO on Monday.

Salerno is currently the executive director and chief operating officer of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences.

She is a graduate of the Harvard Medical School and the Harvard School of Public Health, Dr. Salerno has served in executive, operational, research and public policy roles at the Institute of Medicine (IOM), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Institute on Aging (NIA), the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and with community health and research organizations.

Dr. Salerno’s appointment follows a search that began last August, when Komen founder Nancy G. Brinker announced that she would move from the CEO position to a new role.
