Dr. Nancy Cox began her work on influenza at CDC in 1976. One of the few women in the branch at the time, Cox rose through the ranks and became acting chief of the Influenza Branch in 1989, and Branch Chief in 1992. As Branch Chief, she oversaw the expansion of the branch into a division and, as the Director of the WHO Collaborating Center for the Surveillance, Epidemiology and Control of Influenza, worked closely with global public health officials to strengthen influenza surveillance, prevention, and control capabilities all over the world.
