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

ases. The NIAID budget for fiscal year 2007 is approximately $4.4 billion. He has advised several administrations on global HIV/AIDS issues and other emerging disease threats. These issues have also been the subject of his numerous congressional testimonies and briefings.

It is a remarkable privilege as a physician/scientist to be given the opportunity to help formulate policies and programs that protect and improve global health, says Dr. Fauci. I am fortunate to have been in position to help bridge the gap between the biomedical research and policymaking communities, and to assist our leaders in developing programs predicated on the scientific advances made by NIH, our sister agencies within the Department of Health and Human Services, and our many collaborators worldwide.

In addition to Dr. Faucis Lasker award, the 2007 Lasker Award for Basic Medical Research honors long-time NIAID grantee Ralph M. Steinman of Rockefeller University for his discovery of dendritic cells, immune system cells that trigger other components of the immune system to thwart microbial invaders. Further information about the awards and their recipients is available at www.laskerfoundation.org.

The Lasker Awards were first presented in 1946, and are administered by the Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation. The late Mary Woodard Lasker is widely recognized for her singular contribution to the growth of the National Institutes of Health and her unflagging commitment to government funding of medical research in the hope of curing diseases. Her support for medical research spanned five decades, during which she was the nations foremost citizen-activist on behalf of medical science.

It remains critical that the medical and public health communities channel the spirit of Mary Lasker and argue cogently for medical research, and for adequate attention and sustained support for the delivery of the fruits of that research to the people who
