The International AIDS Society (IAS) awards a Young Investigator Award to a researcher no older than 35 years of age with the highest scoring abstract in each of the conference's five scientific tracks. IAS President Pedro Cahn said, "Among the thousands of excellent abstracts we received for AIDS 2008, the research of the Young Investigator Award winners really stands out. I think the work of these young leaders will contribute enormously to scientific progress on HIV/AIDS."
