Dr . Anthony Fauci announced on Monday that he will be stepping down from his positions as director of NIAID and Key of the NIAID laboratory of immunoregulation.
The 81-year-old Fauci will fully step lower and leave government services in December after more than 50 years.
He will also be stepping down from his position of chief medical adviser in order to President Biden.
“ I am moving from my current positions, I am not heading off , ” Fauci mentioned in a statement.
In a Sunday evening interview, Fauci said he has been “ not retiring within the classic sense, ” plus would devote himself to some (presumably profitable) circuit associated with traveling, writing and motivating young people to enter federal government service .
“ So long as Now i am healthy, which I am, plus I’m energetic, which I am, and I’m passionate, that i am, I want to do some things outside of the realm of the federal government, ” he told the NY Times .
In a Monday statement , President Biden thanked Fauci, who he called the “ dedicated public stalwart and a steady hand with wisdom and insight, ” adding “ Because of Doctor Fauci’s many contributions to public health, lives here in the United States and around the world were saved. ”
