In 2008, Barre-Sinoussi and Luc Montagnier were awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine for their discovery of HIV. Barre-Sinoussi is director of the Regulation of Retroviral Infections Unit at the Institut Pasteur in Paris and assumes the presidency of the International AIDS Society in 2012. She received the award Friday at the university and delivered two lectures on HIV.
