NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne)  --  Dr. Anthony Fauci will in May deliver an address to the spring graduating class at Vanderbilt University.

Dr. Fauci is the nation’s top infectious disease expert and the newly appointed Chief Medical Advisor to President Joe Biden.

The 81-year-old immunologist’s leading role during the coronavirus pandemic has made him a hero to many Americans, but a pariah to others.

In a press statement, Vanderbilt Chancellor Daniel Diermeier said Dr.  Fauci has "courageously led the nation’s COVID-19 response despite bitter politicization of the disease. Dr. Fauci embodies the collaborative, can-do spirit that we hold dear at Vanderbilt."

Dr. Fauci will receive the Vanderbilt Nichols-Chancellor’s Medal during his visit.
