Global Health Grand Rounds: Anthony Fauci, M.D.

HIV/AIDS: A Look to the Future

Anthony S. Fauci, M.D.

Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases

Dr. Fauci is Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the National Institutes of Health. He oversees an extensive research portfolio of basic and applied research to prevent, diagnose, and treat infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections, influenza, tuberculosis, malaria, and illness from potential agents of bioterrorism. His own research on immunoregulation, particularly his contributions to the understanding of how HIV destroys the body's defenses, has made him one of the most-cited scientists since 1983.

Dr. Fauci serves as one of the key advisors to the White House and Department of Health and Human Services on global AIDS issues, and he was one of the principal architects of the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).  Dr. Fauci received his M.D. from Cornell University Medical College in 1966 and then completed his residency at The New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center.
