Date:5/27/2010

Arlington, VA (May 27, 2010) -- CONRAD is pleased to announce that Executive Director, Henry Gabelnick, Ph.D, was awarded the lifetime achievement award at the 6th International Microbicides 2010 Conference. This year's conference, Building Bridges to HIV Prevention, was held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania May 22-25 and before an audience of more than 1,000 HIV advocates and scientists, Dr. Gabelnick was recognized for his unparalleled commitment and dedication to the development of microbicides. The lifetime achievement award was his second in 2005, Dr. Gabelnick was recognized by the International Conference on AIDS India for a lifetime devoted to reproductive health.

"In a field with so many dedicated, brilliant and persistent researchers, I am tremendously honored to be singled out by my peers," said Dr. Gabelnick. His acceptance speech described his early years working in the chemical industry, specifically in the field of plastics, and his journey to more fulfilling work in the field of contraception and microbicides. Dr. Gabelnick received his undergraduate and graduate degrees at MIT and his doctorate from Princeton. After beginning his career in the chemical industry, Dr. Gabelnick moved to the Biomedical Engineering Branch of the National Institutes of Health. He joined CONRAD at its inception in 1986, and focused primarily on developing new methods of contraception until it became clear that HIV prevention was crucial to overall reproductive health. For the past 20 years, CONRAD has contributed to the microbicide development field through the development of preclinical algorithms and primate models, standardization of colposcopy techniques, biomarker research and clinical trials.

CONRAD scientists also presented the following study findings and analyses at various sessions during the conference:
