GlaxoSmithKline Drug Discovery and Development Research Grant Program 2003

Research Triangle Park, N.C. (November 20, 2003) Five researchers have been awarded 2003 GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Drug Discovery and Development Research Grants for their efforts to develop new pharmaceutical strategies to combat HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. The recipients, who will share $500,000 in grant money, are: Paul Bieniasz, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center, New York City; Michael Farzan, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston; Michael Malim, Ph.D., Professor, King's College London, U.K.; Wei Zhang, Ph.D., Senior Scientist, Fluorous Technologies Inc., Pittsburgh; and Ming-Ming Zhou, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York City.

"We are honored to recognize and support the creativity and scientific excellence of these outstanding researchers, whose novel strategies for defeating HIV renew the hope of one day bringing the HIV pandemic to an end, and strengthen our ongoing commitment to the research and development of pharmaceutical therapies against HIV," said Doug Manion, M.D., vice president of clinical development and medical affairs for GSK.

The recipients were announced during the Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC) in Chicago in September.

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.
