Dr. Fauci was appointed Director of NIAID in 1984. He oversees an extensive research portfolio of basic and applied research to prevent, diagnose, and treat infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections, influenza, tuberculosis, malaria and illness from potential agents of bioterrorism.

Vanessa Kerry is a physician and the co-founder and CEO of Seed Global Health (formerly Global Health Service Corps). Having worked in resource-limited settings for over a decade, she has witnessed health inequities in many places in the world and how shortages of indigenous providers in their home countries contribute to those inequities. She envisions a solution where the growing number of US health professionals interested in global health serve as educators and faculty in these countries to build a pipeline of in-country providers. The innovative program gains efficiencies through a public private partnership between Seed Global Health, the Peace Corps and the countries where the volunteers serve.
