French scientist, head of the Pasteur Institute, a virologist who was the first person to discover the virus responsible for AIDS, though another claimed the same distinction, American Robert Gallo, at close to the same time. The clash arose as each called the virus by different initials but in 1986, three years after the discovery, the two mutually agreed on the designation HIV.
