African Organization for Research and Training in Cancer (AORTIC) 2009 Conference: Cancer in Africa—The New Reality

May 2009 marks the 25th anniversary of Dr. Robert C. Gallo's landmark co-discovery of the HIV virus.

Celebrating a Visionary's Quest for Discovery
May 9–11, 2009
Baltimore, Maryland, USA

Monday, May 4, 2009 marked the 25th Anniversary of the publishing of Dr. Robert C. Gallo's findings identifying the AIDS virus, which he named HTLV-III, in Science magazine. Also in that issue, Dr. Gallo and his colleagues described the development of the first blood test for this virus, which is now called HIV. His co-discovery, shared with Luc Montagnier of the Pasteur Institute in Paris, identified HIV as the cause of AIDS. This co-discovery has been internationally recognized as one of the greatest scientific discoveries in medicine. Moreover, the development of the blood test enabled the effective screening of the blood supply and virtually ended transfusion as a mode of transmission for AIDS.

To commemorate this historic discovery, the University of Maryland School of Medicine and the National Cancer Institute co-hosted "Celebrating a Visionary's Quest for Discovery," a three-day celebration looking back at the origins of research on human retroviruses and the 25 years since proving HIV as the cause of AIDS, summarizing the accomplishments of a successful research enterprise, and looking forward to overcoming obstacles in treatment and prevention for the global AIDS epidemic.
