Earlier this year, National Institutes of Health director Francis Collins announced that he would be retiring from his position. Collins has served under three different presidents and spent decades working in the field as a physician and geneticist.

United for Medical Research -- a coalition of patient advocates, research institutions, and private industry that includes the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) – put together a video thanking Collins for his years of service. The video features a long list of leaders in the fields of medicine and research, including AAAS CEO Sudip Parikh.
