The world of AIDS research was in shock on Friday, after dozens of leading HIV experts were feared killed when a Malaysian plane was shot down over Ukraine, fuelling concerns that research on curing the disease could suffer. Among them was Joep Lange, who researched the condition for more than 30 years and was considered a giant in the field. Lange was admired for his tireless advocacy for access to affordable AIDS drugs for HIV positive patients living in poor countries. Peter Piot, top AIDS researcher and director of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, told Reuters in London, "Global health and the AIDS response have lost one of their great leaders."
