The story of a microbiologist’s remarkable career from identifying ?the Ebola virus to pioneering AIDS research and policy.
When Peter Piot was in medical school a professor warned “There’s no future in infectious diseases. They’ve all been solved.” Fortunately Piot ignored him and the result has been an exceptional adventure-filled career. In the 1970s as a young man Piot was sent to Central Africa as part of a team tasked with identifying a grisly new virus. Crossing into the quarantine zone on the most dangerous missions he studied local customs to determine how this disease?the Ebola virus?was spreading. Later Piot found himself in the field again when another mysterious epidemic broke out: AIDS. He traveled throughout Africa leading the first international AIDS initiatives there. Then as founder and director of UNAIDS he negotiated policies with leaders from Fidel Castro to Thabo Mbeki and helped turn the tide of the epidemic. Candid and engrossing No Time to Lose captures the urgency and excitement of being on the front lines in the fight against today’s deadliest diseases.
