Biden Names Cancer Surgeon Head of NIH

From a story on by Erin Schumaker healined “Biden chooses cancer surgeon to lead NIH”:

Monica Bertagnolli, the Boston cancer surgeon President Biden picked to lead the National Institutes of Health, faces a daunting job at the nation’s premier health research agency: restoring faith in science.

Before she gets that chance, she will have to face Republican senators who are deeply skeptical of the NIH following its politicization during the Covid pandemic.

“She’s going to be faced, and the NIH is going to be faced, with a growing anti-science sentiment in this country,” said Anthony Fauci, the former head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the country’s leading Covid lightning rod.
