In February 2018, Joseph F. Fraumeni, Jr., M.D., received special recognition from his fellow Scientific Directors at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Dr. Michael Gottesman, Director of the NIH Office of Intramural Research, presented Dr. Fraumeni with a framed photograph of the NIH Scientific Directors, signed by each of them, and NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins. The token of admiration was presented to Dr. Fraumeni in Dr. Gottesman’s office.
Dr. Fraumeni, the founding Director of the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, stepped down from that position in 2012 after a career-milestone 50 years of service to the National Cancer Institute. In his retirement, he continues to engage with the Division as Scientist Emeritus.
