Margaret (Peggy) Murray, Ph.D. has joined the Center for Truth in Science as its Research Director. 

In her role, Murray will oversee the Center’s commissioned independent research projects and grant recipients, and collaborate with scientists and partners to identify emerging issues and ensure the Center’s research projects meet the highest standard of scientific integrity.

Before joining the Center, Murray spent 30 years at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism—part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH)—where she became a widely known authority on alcohol research and public health outcomes.

“I am proud to announce that such a talented and qualified expert will be leading the Center’s research endeavors. Peggy’s experience and expertise perfectly align with the Center’s mission to cut through the clutter and to be a credible source of fact-based evidence on issues at the intersection of science, justice, and the economy,” said Joseph Annotti, CEO of the Center for Truth in Science. “The Center’s research projects are in good hands with Peggy Murray at the helm.”

Murray has advised at the highest levels, including U.S. Science and Technology committees, NIH, and government-wide initiatives on global health. She has represented the United States in front of several multilateral organizations such as the World Health Organization, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, and National Academies of Sciences committees.
