Nominees were reviewed and elected by the IDSA Board of Directors.
“Each one of these physicians and scientists has achieved an outstanding level of accomplishment in the field of infectious diseases and is a recognised leader in his or her community and institution, whether it be a hospital, clinic, research lab, or other setting,” said IDSA President Stephen Calderwood.
