In Their Own Words...

NIH Researchers Recall the Early Years of AIDS

How can you tell that a patient has a previously unknown disease?

How do you care for someone with a mysterious illness–and protect yourself as well?

How do you investigate the cause of a new disease, and find ways to treat and prevent it?

In Their Own Words documents how NIH researchers answered such questions when asked to recall the early days of HIV/AIDS. In launching this web site, we commemorate the 20-year struggle to confront the deadly HIV/AIDS pandemic.

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory hosted the symposium: HIV/AIDS Research: Its History & Future, October 13-16, 2016. To see videos of the speakers, visit: History of HIV/AIDS Research.
