Anthony Fauci’s New Home At Georgetown University

COVID’s go-to person, Anthony Fauci, is set to become a university professor starting next month, at Georgetown in Washington, D.C.

Tony Fauci To Become School Professor

Dr. Anthony Fauci, who led the federal government’s Covid response as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), is set to join Georgetown University in July as a distinguished professor.

Fauci, 82, will serve as a Distinguished University Professor in the School of Medicine’s Department of Medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases, the university said in a news release on Monday. He will also have an appointment in the McCourt School of Public Policy.

Fauci’s professorship title “recognizes extraordinary achievement in scholarship, teaching and service”, noted Georgetown in a statement.

Though Fauci did not attend Georgetown himself, the school noted that his wife, Christine Grady, is an alumna, and they were married in Georgetown’s Dahlgren Chapel of the Sacred Heart in 1985.

Here’s What He’ll Do

Georgetown said Fauci will participate in medical and grad school education and will engage with students. Fauci said it was a “no-brainer”, it was a priority for him to stay in Washington, D.C., he has personal ties to the university and he has been involved in events on campus over the years.

“I ask myself, now, at this stage in my life, what do I have to offer to society?” Fauci said in a Q&A released by the university. “I could do more experiments in the lab and have my lab going, but given what I’ve been through, I think what I have to offer is experience and inspiration to the younger generation of students.”

Fauci’s Career History

Dr. Fauci played a vital role in the early 1980s in the response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic, acting as a leading researcher on the discovery, diagnosis, and treatment of patients with HIV/AIDS. His treatment of the AIDS crisis was widely criticized.

Dr. Anthony Fauci has served as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the Chief Medical Advisor to the President for seven different administrations. 

Fauci began his tenure as the Director of the NIAID in 1984 under President Ronald Reagan. He served in this role for 39 years, until his retirement at the end of 2022.
