The annual prize is divided into three categories — past, present, and future. Fauci won the prize for the present section, and is this year’s only individual winner.
“Dr. Fauci’s contribution has encompassed the basic laboratory and clinical research that has underpinned the development of effective treatments and vaccines for these diseases, but equally important his leadership has helped ensure that this basic research has been translated into a public health impact across the world.”
Miller said Fauci’s “courageous leadership,” noted worldwide during the Covid-19 pandemic, was another reason he was selected for the prize.
