Choice Matters

Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the US National Institutes of Health.

Antiretroviral drugs have helped transform HIV from a life-threatening infection to a manageable chronic condition – an advancement that was almost unimaginable in the early 1980s. When Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the US National Institutes of Health, first entered the field, the disease didn’t even have a name, but he recognized the potential ramifications for the global community. “In 1981, I was in the early stages of a successful career studying immune-mediated diseases when the first reports came out describing the disease that would later become known as AIDS. I recognized very early on that this was going to become a global problem, and I decided to switch my focus and begin researching this disease that did not even have a name at the time – much less a known etiology. That choice informed the entire trajectory of my career,” says Fauci, whose vast research portfolio has resulted in substantial contributions to the ways HIV/AIDS is prevented, diagnosed and treated today.

After finishing my degree, I envisioned a career in science communications. However, life took an unexpected turn and I ended up teaching abroad. Though the experience was amazing and I learned a great deal from it, I jumped at the opportunity to work for Texere. I'm excited to see where this new journey takes me!
