HIV/AIDS at 30: Discovery, Prevention and Treatment

News Article Image

As AIDS reaches its 30th anniversary, Emory physicians, scientists and educators continue to play a key role in prevention, research and treatment. From inventing some of the most successful HIV/AIDS drugs, to developing and testing promising vaccines, conducting clinical trials, leading behavioral and prevention research and treating thousands of patients, Emory has been a leader in fighting this challenging global disease from the earliest days of the epidemic. 

One of those pioneers is James Curran, MD, MPH, dean of Emory’s Rollins School of Public Health. Curran recently received the 2011 Ryan White Distinguished Leadership Award for his lifetime of significant contributions to AIDS prevention, including leading the early research and prevention efforts of the CDC after the first reported cases of the impending epidemic.
