The dark brown couch—probably government-issued Naugahyde—in the office of Anthony Fauci, MD, shows its age, the edges of its square seat cushions cracked and white.
Fauci’s hair is whiter now than it was 30 years ago, when, as the newly appointed director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, he invited 2 colleagues, John LaMontagne, PhD, and Maureen Myers, PhD, to sit on the couch and discuss the need for a concerted national effort to test AIDS therapies.
