Her highly significant discovery in 1983 allowed the development of diagnostic tests and of treatments that now keep people with HIV alive, and earned Barré-Sinoussi and her former colleague Luc Montagnier the 2008 NOBEL PRIZE FOR MEDICINE (they shared it with Harald zur Hausen, who discovered that human papilloma virus causes cervical cancer).
