IDSA and HIVMA on Incoming NIAID Director Dr. Jeanne Marrazzo
The Infectious Diseases Society of America and the HIV Medicine Association applaud the selection of Dr. Jeanne Marrazzo to lead the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
Dr. Marrazzo is an exceptional infectious diseases physician, leader, mentor and scientist who has dedicated her career to key areas of research, including sexually transmitted infections, HIV and antimicrobial resistance.
Dr. Marrazzo’s innumerable qualifications include her leadership of international clinical trials and of the Division of Infectious Diseases at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where she mentors, teaches and trains the next generation of infectious diseases experts.
IDSA and its members have experienced firsthand Dr. Marrazzo’s effective, engaging and visionary leadership through her many years of service on the Board of Directors. We are proud to call her a colleague, and we thank her for her invaluable contributions to our Society.
We look forward to working with her in her capacity as NIAID director to strengthen the pipeline of ID researchers and physician-scientists and advance groundbreaking science that will improve outbreak and pandemic preparedness, combat antimicrobial resistance and end HIV as an epidemic.
