Date:9/26/2007

ATLANTA, Sept. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- GeoVax Labs, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: GOVX), an Atlanta based biotechnology company, announced receipt of an estimated $15,000,000 Integrated Preclinical/Clinical AIDS Vaccine Development [IPCAVD] Grant to support its HIV/AIDS vaccine program.

This large Grant was awarded by the National Institutes of Health-National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Disease [NIH-NIAID], an agency of the U.S. Government. Funding commences October 2007.

Only meritorious HIV/AIDS prevention vaccine candidates are considered to receive an IPCAVD award. Candidate companies are highly scrutinized and must supply substantial positive AIDS vaccine data to support their application. IPCAVD grants are awarded on a competitive basis and are designed to support later stage vaccine research, development and human trials.

GeoVax will utilize this funding to further its HIV/AIDS vaccine development, optimization, production and human clinical trial testing including Phase 2 human clinical trials planned for 2008.

Dr. Harriet Robinson, Chief Scientific Advisor for GeoVax, guided development of the IPCAVD proposal and will lead a major part of its related studies. Dr. Robinson stated, "This grant will allow GeoVax to move forward our AIDS vaccine evaluation program more efficiently and more rapidly."

"Our selection as a grant recipient is a validation of our vaccine technology, scientific program, success in human trials to date and future strategies," said GeoVax President/CEO, Don Hildebrand. "This $15 million in funding will support additional AIDS vaccine studies as well as expansion of our scientific team at GeoVax."
