This is a portrait of mycologist, Libero Ajello, Ph.D., former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Chief of the Mycology Diagnostic, Reference and Research Unit. Dr. Ajello was renowned for his work in the field of medical mycology, and his 43-years of dedicated service at the CDC from 1947 through 1990. He is one of the founders for the International Society of Human and Animal Mycology (ISHAM), and was the society’s president from 1971 to 1975, and for a number of years, was ISHAM’s journal Editor as well. Known as “Li” to his friends and colleagues, Dr. Ajello’s contributions to the field of medical mycology lifted what was once an obscure field of study, to what is now a well-recognized area of science, thereby, influencing the understanding of fungal dermatopathology throughout the worldwide realm of public health practice.
