Prof. Peter Duesberg is professor of Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of California at Berkeley. He was the first to isolate a cancer gene through his work with retroviruses back in 1970and mapped the genetic structure of this class of viruses. His work in retrovirus research awarded him an election to the National Academy of Sciences and Outstanding Investigator Grants from the National Institutes of Health. Based upon his knowledge of retroviruses, he has been at the forefront in challenging the virus-AIDS hypothesis and has published in the world’s leading medical journals. As a consequence, Dr. Duesberg’s hypothesis has won support from many scientists who have been outcast from publishing their views, including nobel laureates such Kary Mullis, inventor of PCR technology.
Celia Farber is a journalist who covered the HIV wars extensively since 1987, in various magazines. Some of these writings are collected in her book: "Serious Adverse Events: An Uncensored History of AIDS" published by Melville House Press, (now Random House) in 2006.
Activist Michael Callen called Farber "..the best AIDS journalist in the world." Her 2006 article for Harper's magazine detailing the corruption of HIV/AIDS research was titled "Out of Control: AIDS And The Corruption of Medical Science." Attacks from the AIDS industry on Celia's research have been predictable and fierce. Nevertheless, she still won the 2008 Semmelweis Clean Hands Award for Outstanding Investigative Journalism.
