GlaxoSmithKline Drug Discovery and Development Award 2002

Six HIV and AIDS researchers will split $500,000 as this year's recipients of the GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Drug Discovery and Development Award. The unrestricted research award program is funded by GSK to support independent, innovative and novel research in the development of HIV/AIDS therapeutics.

An Expert Review Board, composed of researchers who are leaders in the field of HIV/AIDS, independently judged and selected the award recipients. John A. Bartlett, M.D., professor of medicine at Duke University Medical Center; David D. Ho, M.D., professor at Rockefeller University and scientific director at Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center; and Michael Saag, M.D., associate professor of medicine and director of the AIDS Outpatient Clinic at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, served on the board this year.

Recipients of the awards are Irwin Chaiken, Ph.D., University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, for his work studying the interactions between proteins that allow HIV to recognize and enter a host cell, research that potentially will lead to drugs that prevent the virus-cell fusion process; Nouri Neamati, Ph.D., University of Southern California School of Pharmacy, Los Angeles, for work in identifying the drug-binding site on HIV integrase, which should lead to development of second- and third-generation drugs that inhibit that enzyme; Alan C. Sartorelli, Ph.D., Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, Conn., for his research on making certain enzyme inhibitors work more effectively; Nan-Sook Lee, Ph.D., Beckman Institute of the City of Hope, Duarte, Calif., for her research using gene therapy as a potential HIV/AIDS treatment; Elias Lolis, Ph.D., Yale University School of Medicine, for his work in attempting to solve likely side effects of some of the experimental entry inhibitor drugs; and Min Lu, Ph.D., Weill Medical College of Cornell University, New York, N.Y., for his research of a drug developed for herpes that may eventually be used for
