Dr. H. Clifford Lane, clinical director at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), started his career at NIH in 1979. It was not too long afterwards that the AIDS epidemic emerged. His work was pivotal in turning an HIV diagnosis from a death sentence into a manageable chronic disease.

  • Lane said the beginning of the AIDS epidemic was an intense and sad but motivating time and that the development of an HIV vaccine remains a challenge for scientists.
  • Lane helped develop treatment guidelines for Covid-19, which he said have been updated over 50 times as doctors continue to learn about the disease.
  • He said it is rewarding to work in government because of the focus on mission.
