Date:1/9/2009

BETHESDA, Md., Jan. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) announces that its President and CEO, William M.

The Council serves as NIAID's main advisory body on key functions, including: performing peer review, advising on policy, reviewing programs, and developing and clearing concepts for program announcements, requests for applications and requests for proposals.
