The head of the National Institutes of Health, Francis Collins announced his resignation Tuesday morning.

Fox News reports:

“I am proud of all we’ve accomplished. I fundamentally believe, however, that no single person should serve in the position too long, and that it’s time to bring in a new scientist to lead the NIH into the future,” Collins said in a statement. “I’m most grateful and proud of the NIH staff and the scientific community, whose extraordinary commitment to lifesaving research delivers hope to the American people and the world every day.”

The 71-year-old physician-geneticist, who oversaw the research center for 12 years, aims to return to the National Human Genome Research Institute, the Washington Post reported. The lab is a branch of NIH.

Collins led the acclaimed Human Genome Project to completion in 2003 and, in recent months, he has worked to accelerate treatments for the coronavirus. In August, he appeared on “Fox News Sunday” and stressed the highly contagious nature of the delta variant, while acknowledging that vaccines are generally effective against it.

Collins went on to say that while infections of vaccinated people are rare and do not pose significant risks to those people themselves, vaccinated people who do catch it can transmit it to others. That, he explained, is why the CDC is recommending people in areas where there is high transmission to go back to wearing masks indoors, even if they are vaccinated.

Collins choice to resign from the NIH now leave the question who will replace him in the position.

  1. I think he knows they have bauched the handling of the Pandemic by pushing the Vax on everyone without knowing if it is safe or even works.

    1. He is a One World/New World Order mouthpiece. The major crime that the government at the behest of Fauci and cronies is the denial of the usefulness of cheaper prevalent alternatives.

  2. Collins doesn’t sound so bright to me. “Infections of vaccinated people are rare”? And that is why 60% of people being admitted to the hospital with covid have been fully vaccinated? Is this guy nuts?

    1. According to real research and data from UK and Israel, as well as data from around the world, is that the virus mutated due to the mRNA vaccines and they’re not preventing Covid-19.

      1. And research by organizations not connected to Fauci and the CDC report in reality Covid-19 is an entity that does not exist. What people are being infected with is a gain-of-function manipulated version of SARS-Cov-2 which is the prime-progenitor the Wuhan Lab was working with, despite Fauci’s denials. And even SARS-Cov-2 has a very low fatality rate.

  3. Oh Mr. Collins, we know why u are stepping down,u are being investigated with Fraudci,and lying Daszak for your cover=up for china, for this bio=weapon,they released on the world. U lied with the rest of them to cover=up this, and hopefully u will get your come=upins for this dspicable act,that u scientists help create and unleash on the world. u should be worried,along with fraudci and daszak, for your cover=up.

    1. I am definitely inclined to believe you are correct.None of these rats should be able to walk away without serious punishment even capital punishment . Millions of deaths directly related to a man-manipulated virus strain.

  4. He is leaving the NIH and going to work for a branch of the NIH? How us that leaving? Sounds more like he is attempting to hide. ALL of the LIES Fauci has been exposed for have to take their toll on Fauci’s colleagues and supporters. Who has any confidence at all in Fauci? There are 1000’s of doctors across the country who are much better trained than Fauci who should have his job.

  5. “Collins choice to resign from the NIH …” If he didn’t resign, what were his other choices? Who gave him the choices? Or did then mean his decision to resign…?

  6. Too dumb to get a real job…the story of most Government EMPLOYEES…or the unemployable cousin of one of the political dummies now in charge of OUR FUTURE!!!

  7. Francis Collins the Pagan Evolutionalry Pseudo Christian knows he hasd misled America and is now getting out of Dodge before the SHTF. His repleacment beng appointed under an Obama/Bidden Fascist regime will be even worse

  8. I’ve seen this guy on ABC. He is a total leftist.
    Probably wants to leave before the you know what hits the fan! He’s for lock downs, masks, and everything else that henders our freedoms.
    I know someone who got the vax very early on, got it again and died. Young and no health problems. Would like an explanation for this one???

  9. Hey genius, 56,000 infections of fully injected humans hardly sounds like a rarity. With this statement is sounds like a good idea for you to leave. Maybe even go back to school and learn how to be a real scientist.

  10. I do not know anyone who trusts the NIH any more. They have lied to the American Citizen on behalf of the democrats who hate those who will not believe there B/S story on the vaccine. Stand up and say NO, I have and many others have too.
