Caption: Montagnier. Portrait of Professor Luc Montagnier, French researcher on AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) at the Pasteur Institute in Paris. Here, he is photographed at a conference on AIDS ("Sidathon") in 1994. Montagnier was the leader of one of the research teams who first isolated the causative agent of AIDS in 1983. Montagnier designated the agent, a retrovirus, LAV (lymphadenopathy-associated virus). The same virus was independently isolated in early 1984 by an American team. It is now known as HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus). Montagnier and other research teams are working to develop a vaccine for the disease. In 2008 he won the Nobel Prize for Medicine.
