Fauci Wins Annunzio Award
NIAID director Dr. Anthony S. Fauci receives the 2001 Frank Annunzio Award in the Humanitarian Field from Rosalyn Queen Alonso, chair of the Christopher Columbus Fellowship Foundation, an independent federal government agency. The awards are presented annually to living Americans whose thinking has led to creative work, process, product or other achievement that has had a significant and beneficial impact on society. The honor was presented Oct. 7 in Chicago. The foundation stated: "From the early 1970s to the present, Dr. Fauci has been internationally recognized as one of the world's leading researchers in the study of the pathogenesis and treatment of immune-mediated and infectious diseases. His contributions toward understanding the regulation of the human immune response and the pathogenesis of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease are universally renowned, and have served as the basis for our current strategies for the development of effective therapies for AIDS as well as for regeneration of the damaged immune system."
