Dr. Casadevall has provided exemplary training and mentoring to a significant number of minority scientists, and himself served as a role model of success. He is the first Hispanic Department Chair at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and has been recognized by the Hispanic Center for Excellence at Einstein for training minority students. Among Dr. Casadevall's trainees, nearly half are members of underrepresented minority groups, and more than half are women. The professional accomplishments of these young scientists are testaments to the supportive, nurturing, and individualized environment he creates for each student, as well as the scientific rigor and excellence they encounter in the laboratory. Dr. Casadevall has received numerous honors for his groundbreaking work in the field of infectious diseases, including a 2007 NIH Merit Award. He is also President of the Medical Mycology Society of America, Chair of the ASM Career Development Committee, Co-Chair of the NIAID Board of Scientific Counselors, a member of the American Association of Physicians, a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology.
