Fauci to Receive Frank Annunzio Humanitarian Award
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, on Sunday will receive the 2001 Frank Annunzio Award in the Humanitarian Field from the Christopher Columbus Fellowship Foundation, according to an NIH release. The Annunzio awards are presented 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 Christopher Columbus Fellowship Foundation, an independent federal government agency that supports research in various fields, said in a written statement that Fauci's "contributions toward understanding the regulation and pathogenesis of HIV 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" (NIH release, 10/4).
