ISB/Science in Society: Anthony S. Fauci: Infectious Diseases
Appointed director of the National Institute for Allergy & Infectious Diseases in 1984, Anthony S. Fauci oversees an extensive research portfolio to prevent, diagnose, and treat infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, influenza, tuberculosis, malaria, and illness from potential agents of bioterrorism. In this talk, titled "Emerging and Re-Emerging Infectious Diseases: The Perpetual Challenge to Global Health," Fauci draws on his role as one of the key advisors to the White House and Department of Health and Human Services on global AIDS issues, and on initiatives to bolster medical and public-health preparedness against emerging infectious disease threats such as pandemic influenza. Presented as part of Science In Society, a collaboration of the Institute for Systems Biology and Town Hall. Series supported by Microsoft; media sponsorship provided by KPLU.
