Georgetown hires Anthony Fauci as ‘distinguished professor’ of infectious diseases
Introducing Professor Anthony Fauci.
The highly controversial infectious disease expert who many argued made disastrous mistakes regarding his recommended COVID-19 pandemic responses has been hired as a distinguished professor at Georgetown University.
“Starting July 1, Fauci will serve as a Distinguished University Professor in the School of Medicine’s Department of Medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases, an academic division that provides clinical care, conducts research and trains future physicians in infectious diseases,” the institution announced Monday. “He will also hold an additional appointment in the university’s McCourt School of Public Policy.”
The 82-year-old Fauci, who has advised “seven presidents on crises from AIDS to Ebola to the coronavirus … stepped down after 38 years as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease in December,” the Washington Post reported.
Fauci has come under increasing scrutiny from lawmakers and the public at large over not only his handling of the COVID pandemic strategy but also his past work and research funding decisions, including his NIH role in approving controversial “gain of function” coronavirus research.
Fauci also came under fire because an NIH division he oversaw funded various studies that exposed dogs to devocalization and euthanatized them to test various vaccines, Poynter reported.
As for his handling of the pandemic, Steven Mosher, author of “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Pandemics,” argued in a June 2022 op-ed for the New York Post that under Fauci’s influence, the country committed “every epidemiological sin in the book,” including instituting harmful school closures, requiring pointless contact tracing, failing to protect the most vulnerable, and ignoring and dismissing natural immunity.
