This ceremony took place at the Moscone Convention Center as part of the program at the infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) annual meeting, during the official session symposium, “The Resurgent Sexually Transmitted Diseases in the AIDS Era.” The AHF’s Research Awards program is intended to recognize and encourage new investigators who have made important contributions to a better understanding of herpes- virus infections. These awards are granted to researchers for work already completed. Each award provides a $ 10,000 cash prize, half to the winning candidate and half to the sponsoring department. Candidates are nominated for these awards by their Department Chairs. ”We hope that this reward for work well done will encourage more interest in the field of herpesvirus research”, said AHF’s Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Dr. Richard Whitley of University of Alabama School of Medicine. The Gertrude B. Elion Award, named after the Nobel prize winner, is presented each year to honor a female resident or fellow. This year, the special award was presented to Dr. van Dyk. The AHF is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the management of herpesvirus infections. Its mission is to enhance the awareness, understanding and control of herpesvirus infections in the United States by disseminating information and ensuring the exchange of ideas. The AHF is directed by an independent Board of Trustees and is composed of nationally recognized experts on herpesvirus infections. Activities of the AHF are supported through unrestricted educational grants from GlaxoSmithKline and Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation. The AHF gratefully acknowledges IDSA for providing an outstanding venue in which Drs. van Dyk and Shukia could be recognized by their peers for their outstanding research. The AHF also thanks Dr. Ann Arvin, member of the Board of Trustees, for hosting the awards ceremony.
