Dr. Fauci, who has been the NIAID director since 1984, recently spoke with CNN’s Kate Bolduan about the ongoing monkeypox issue. Eventually, the conversation turned to Fauci’s supposed retirement. The infectious disease expert admitted that he couldn’t do his job forever and eventually would have to hang up his hat.
Fauci noted that while his retirement is on the horizon, it won’t take place anytime soon. Despite his comments, the doctor said he would no longer be in his position by the end of President Biden’s first term, which ends in January 2025.
Fauci explained being the NIAID director for nearly four decades allowed him to establish it as the world’s “best program” regarding infectious diseases in his estimation, but he wants to pursue other goals while he still has the energy and time.
The 81-year-old mentioned no outside forces were pushing him to retirement, asserting the decision was his own and nothing had influenced him to make that choice.
