Dr. Fauci has made many contributions to basic and clinical research on the pathogenesis and treatment of immune-mediated diseases. He has developed effective therapies for formerly fatal inflammatory and immune-mediated diseases such as polyarteritis nodosa, Wegener's granulomatosis, and lymphomatoid granulomatosis. Dr. Fauci has made influential contributions to the understanding of how HIV destroys the body's defenses leading to the progression of AIDS, and he has played an important role in developing strategies for the therapy and immune reconstitution of patients with this disease, as well as for a vaccine to prevent HIV infection.

In 1984, Dr. Fauci became Director of NIAID (National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases), where he oversees an extensive research portfolio of basic and applied research to prevent, diagnose, and treat infectious and immune-mediated illnesses, including HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases, illness from potential agents of bioterrorism, tuberculosis, malaria, autoimmune disorders, asthma, and allergies.

Ted Cooper, president of the Will Rogers Institute, stated "Dr. Fauci was honored by the Institute because his work has consistently produced outstanding and influential research and he has been on the front lines of the HIV epidemic since day one."
