Dr. Fauci was appointed director of the National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases (NIAID) in 1984. He oversees an extensive portfolio of basic and applied research to prevent, diagnose, and treat established infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, respiratory infections, diarrheal diseases, tuberculosis and malaria as well as emerging diseases such as Ebola and Zika. NIAID also supports research on transplantation and immune-related illnesses, including autoimmune disorders, asthma and allergies. The NIAID budget for fiscal year 2021 is an estimated $6.1 billion. Dr. Fauci has overseen the U.S. response to 50 years of outbreaks from HIV/AIDS, to SARS and Ebola, and advised seven presidents on domestic and global health issues. (104 mins)
