entrepreneurial experiences to his job as director of the Division of AIDS (DAIDS),
part of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). Dr.
Tramont was instrumental in developing eight experimental vaccines, two of

industry; consulted on operation Desert Storm; and once, as a young resident
