Caption: Luc Montagnier. Portrait of Luc Montagnier (born 1932), virologist and discoverer of the HIV virus that causes AIDS. He is seen here with an electron micrograph image of the HIV virus in the background. He is Professor at the Pasteur Institute and heads the AIDS-Retroviral and Viral Oncology Departments. In the 1960s, his work led to the discovery of retroviruses. In 1983 he isolated the HIV virus, initially calling it LAV (lymphodenopathy-associated virus), but then renaming it HIV. He is now working on vaccines and antiviral therapies to treat HIV infection. Montagnier won the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2008. Photographed in 1996.
