Fauci was for a long time the head of the Immunoregulation Laboratory. He made many contributions to basic and clinical research on the pathogenesis and treatment of infectious and immune-mediated diseases. He helped to be a pioneer in the field of human immunoregulation by making important basic scientific observations that support the current understanding of the regulation of the human immune response. Fauci is widely recognized for outlining the precise ways in which immunosuppressive agents modulate the human immune response.
He developed effective therapies for inflammatory and immune-mediated diseases that were previously fatal, such as polyarteritis nodosa, granulomatosis with polyangiitis (formerly Wegener granulomatosis) and lymphomatoid granulomatosis. Fauci made fundamental contributions to understanding how HIV destroys the body's defenses, making it susceptible to deadly infections. In addition, he played a decisive role in the development of treatments that allow people with HIV to live long and active lives. Fauci has given important lectures around the world and has received numerous prestigious awards, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom (the highest honor that the President of the United States bestows on a civilian), the National Medal of Science, the George M.
Kober Medal of the United States Physicians Association, the Mary Woodard Lasker Public Service Award, the Albany Medical Center Award in Medicine and Biomedical Research, the Robert Koch Gold Medal, the Prince Mahon Dol Prize and Gairdner Health Prize Global from Canada. He also received 58 honorary doctorates from universities in the United States and abroad. Fauci is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the American Philosophical Society, as well as other professional societies such as the American College of Physicians, the American Society for Clinical Research, the Association of Physicians of the United States, the Infectious Diseases Society of the United States, the American Association of Immunologists and the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma %26 Immunology. He is part of the editorial boards of many scientific journals and is the author, co-author or editor of more than 1,400 scientific publications, including several textbooks.
Sol Sherry joined Temple University School of Medicine as director of the Department of Medicine. One of its first employees was Dr. Robert Swenson, a rising infectious disease specialist who had trained with one of the country's leading experts in infectious diseases, Dr. Infectious Diseases or ID, also known as infectology, is a medical specialty that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of infections.
The practice of an infectious disease specialist involves treating nosocomial infections (acquired by medical care) or community-acquired infections and, historically, has been associated with hygiene, epidemiology, clinical microbiology, travel medicine and tropical medicine.
