Our Deepest Sorrow and Condolences
On behalf of everyone at the Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center, I would like to express our deepest sorrow for the loss of all of the AIDS researchers on Malaysian flight MH17. Their passing is not only tragic but also devastating to the field, for they are valued colleagues in the struggle against HIV. One of them, in particular, is Joep Lange, who had been a friend for over 25 years. He was a pioneering clinical investigator who worked on HIV and TB; he was an important opinion leader who had led an AIDS unit at the WHO as well as the International AIDS Society; and he was a tireless advocate for people afflicted by the AIDS pandemic. Most of all, he was a dear friend. Joep's legacy, however, will be lasting, as reflected by his numerous contributions.
Our hearts go out to the families and friends of those who were lost so tragically.
