Barry Meier was a member of the New York Times reporting team that won the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting. He is also a Pulitzer finalist and a two-time winner of the George Polk Award.
During a 28-year-long career at The Times, his work concentrated on the intersection of business, medicine and the public’s health. He exposed the dangers of various drugs and medical products, including a defective heart device and a generation of flawed artificial hips and was the first journalist to shed a national spotlight on the abuse of OxyContin.
He lives in New York with his wife and their daughter.
