KBFUS chair among Bill Gates ‘Heroes in the Field’

June 6, 2019

“When I picture the quintessential virus hunter, one name comes to mind: Dr. Peter Piot,” says Bill Gates in his recent blog, Meet the virus hunters. In 1976, Peter co-discovered the Ebola virus in Zaire (now DRC). He later became the founding executive director of UNAIDS, and now leads the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. Since 2013, he serves as chairman of the board of directors of KBFUS.
