David D. Ho

国际著名艾滋病专家何大一博士是世界闻名微生物研究院,艾伦戴蒙德艾滋病研究中心首 任科学研究主任和首席执行官,他也是美国洛克菲勒大学艾琳戴蒙德教授。

何大一博士在艾滋病研究领域的最前沿工作了多年, 何大一博士1990 年的卓越研究成果 揭示了艾滋病病毒在体内复制的动态生物学,使人们对艾滋病病毒的理解达到了一个质的 飞跃。这一独特见解奠定了何大一博士在艾滋病抗逆转病毒联合用药治疗的世界领先地位, 自1996 年以来它前所未有地控制了艾滋病病毒在患者体内传播。发达国家中由艾滋病引 起的死亡率大大下降,用此治疗方案挽救发展中国家的上百万艾滋病患者的大规模国际行 动已经开始实施。至今全世界1 千多万艾滋病患者受益于抗逆转病毒联合用药治疗,何大一博士对人类历史上最骇人的瘟疫有着巨大的突破和推动力。

何大一博士以他卓越的科学贡献获得了很多荣誉勋章和奖项,他是美国14 所大学的荣誉 博士。 何大一博士是美国国家医学院院士,(原美国国家科学院医学研究所)。何大一博士是1996 年时代杂志年度的风云人物,他也荣获2001 年美国总统勋章奖。

David D. Ho, M.D. is the founding Scientific Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center, as well as the Irene Diamond Professor at The Rockefeller University. He has been at the forefront of AIDS research since the beginning of the epidemic. His elegant studies in the mid 1990’s unveiled the dynamic nature of HIV replication in vivo and revolutionized our basic understanding of this horrific disease. This knowledge led Dr. Ho to champion combination antiretroviral therapy that resulted in unprecedented control of HIV in patients since 1996. AIDS mortality in richer nations has declined dramatically, and a massive international effort is now underway to bring such life-saving treatment to millions in the developing world. To date over 10 million patients have benefitted from combination antiretroviral therapy. Dr. Ho has been a major driving force behind this major medical breakthrough in what is arguably the worst plague in human history. For his accomplishments, Dr. Ho has been recognized in multiple ways, including fourteen honorary doctorates and election to the National Academy of Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine, National Academy of Sciences). He was named Time Magazine’s Man of the Year in 1996, and was the recipient of a Presidential Medal from Bill Clinton in 2001.
