Anthony S. Fauci awarded Lasker Award for Public Service
Date:9/18/2007

Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), has been awarded the 2007 Mary Woodard Lasker Award for Public Service for his role in developing two major U.S. public health programs, in AIDS and biodefense. The award will be presented on Friday, September 28th during a luncheon ceremony in New York City.

Dr. Fauci is honored for his role in helping develop the Presidents Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the largest public health program in history devoted to a single disease, as well as Project Bioshield, designed to accelerate the research, development, purchase and availability of medical countermeasures against the effects of biological, chemical, radiological and nuclear agents.

In nearly four decades of service to NIH, Tony Fauci has made innumerable scientific contributions that have improved the health of millions of people in this country and abroad, says NIH Director Elias A. Zerhouni, M.D. As a clinician, researcher, and scientific leader, Dr. Fauci has channeled his intellect, compassion, and vision into discoveries and research programs that have transformed medicine and public health.

Earlier this year, Dr. Fauci received two other major honors: the George M. Kober Medal of the Association of American Physicians for his work in clinical medicine, and the National Medal of Science, for his research into the pathogenesis of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease.

Dr. Zerhouni adds, It is fitting to have Tony recognized with a trifecta of awards related to the three fundamental NIH missions: basic research, clinical research, and public service. It is hard to think of anyone more deserving of this award.

Dr. Faucis tenure as NIAID director began in 1984. For nearly 23 years, he has overseen the extensive NIAID research portfolio of basic and applied research to prevent, diagnose and treat infectious and immunologic dise
