He is a leader in global health program management with more than 20 years of experience in medical products regulation and quality assurance systems strengthening.

Before joining USP, Mr. Nwokike served as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) liaison working closely with the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) on the PEPFAR antiretroviral drugs (ARVs) tentative approval program. As FDA’s point of contact, he coordinated activities dealing with pharmaceutical companies seeking to participate in the expedited review process for ARVs and liaised with the World Health Organization to share information on FDA tentatively approved and approved ARVs. Prior to FDA, he worked for around 10 years with the USAID-funded programs of Management Sciences for Health (MSH), around 10 years in the pharmaceutical industry, and two years with the government of Botswana.

The Institute for Global Health Seminar Series is held the first Friday of each month, September through July, and will feature the research and ideas of outstanding global health leaders at Feinberg, the larger Northwestern community, and beyond.
