Dr. Anthony Fauci
2010 (Part 1) Video

National Institutes of Health
Introduction

Dr. Collins has dedicated his career to mapping and identifying genes that cause human diseases including cystic fibrosis and Huntington's disease. For 15 years, he served as Director of the National Center for Human Genome Research, one of the largest undertakings in the history of science. Under his leadership, this effort charted the entire human genome, and is on its way to unlocking all of the mysteries of human heredity. In 2009 Dr. Collins was sworn in as the 16th Director of the National Institutes of Health.

Dr. Anthony Fauci is best known for his pioneering discoveries in the understanding and treatment of HIV-AIDS. He is also the administrator of a multi-billion dollar government agency that oversees our nation's efforts to combat AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and pandemic flu, and maintains our medical defense against acts of bioterrorism as the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
