John Ring LaMontagne Memorial Chair in Infectious Diseases and Global Health
Dr. John Ring LaMontagne helped advance the fight against many of the world’s most devastating diseases: influenza, tuberculosis, malaria, whooping cough, swine flu, childhood diarrhea, pneumonia and AIDS. Through his work at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), John championed science that ultimately helped millions of people. With his passing on November 2, 2004, the world lost a true hero of public health.
