Regarding comments that Fauci dad was a doctor, his entirety of academic work was gain of function, blah, blah cult of personality.
His dad was a pharmacist.
His variety of academic and research work covers many area - HIV, Ebola, SARS, some of the most important work done in rheumatology over 20 years and protection against bio weapons.
Pretty varied. And hardly a cult of personality to respect that level of achievement and contribution to world health.
I’m amazed that people don’t even bother to read the minimum before having “opinions”.
Just look at his bio
“ Fauci has made important scientific observations that contributed to the understanding of the regulation of the human immune response and is recognized for delineating the mechanisms whereby immunosuppressive agents adapt to that response. He developed therapies for formerly fatal diseases such as polyarteritis nodosa, granulomatosis with polyangiitis, and lymphomatoid granulomatosis. In a 1985 Stanford University Arthritis Center Survey, members of the American Rheumatism Association ranked Fauci’s work on the treatment of polyarteritis nodosa and granulomatosis with polyangiitis as one of the most important advances in patient management in rheumatology over the previous 20 years.
President Barack Obama greets Fauci in June 2014.
Fauci has contributed to the understanding of how HIV destroys the body’s natural defense system, progressing to AIDS. He has outlined the mechanisms of induction of HIV expression by endogenous cytokines. Fauci has worked to develop strategies for the therapy and immune reconstitution of patients with the disease, as well as for a vaccine to prevent HIV infection. His current research is concentrated on identifying the nature of the immunopathogenic mechanisms of HIV infection and the scope of the body’s immune responses to HIV.
In 2003, the Institute for Scientific Information stated that from 1983 to 2002, “Fauci was the 13th most-cited scientist among the 2.5 to 3.0 million authors in all disciplines throughout the world who published articles in scientific journals.””
