Anthony S. Fauci, who retired from the National Institutes of Health in December after helping two presidents navigate the coronavirus pandemic, plans to join the faculty at Georgetown University on July 1, according to the university.


Fauci, 82, will teach medicine and public policy as a “distinguished university professor,” a title that recognizes “extraordinary achievement in scholarship, teaching and service,” Georgetown said in a statement released Monday.


Fauci, a world authority on infectious disease who advised seven presidents on crises from AIDS to Ebola to the coronavirus, will teach in both the School of Medicine and the McCourt School of Public Policy, Georgetown officials said. Fauci stepped down after 38 years as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease in December.
