Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert who became a household name – and the subject of partisan attacks – during the COVID-19 pandemic, announced Monday he will depart the federal government in December after more than five decades of service.
Fauci, who serves as President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser, has been the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and chief of the NIAID Laboratory of Immunoregulation.
“I will be leaving these positions in December of this year to pursue the next chapter of my career,” Fauci said in a statement, calling those roles “the honor of a lifetime.”
Fauci became the face of the government response to COVID-19 as it hit in early 2020, with frequent appearances on television news and at daily press conferences with White House officials.
Fauci fell out of favor with President Donald Trump and his officials when he urged continued public caution as the now former president pressed for a to return to normalcy while promoting unproven therapies for the virus. He also was the subject of political attacks and death threats and was granted a security detail for his protection.

When Biden won the White House, he asked Fauci to stay on in his administration in an elevated capacity.
Fauci said despite retiring from federal service he planned to continue working.
“I want to use what I have learned as NIAID director to continue to advance science and public health and to inspire and mentor the next generation of scientific leaders as they help prepare the world to face future infectious disease threats,” he said.
Fauci was a leader in the federal response to HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases even before the coronavirus hit.
