His or her?[edit]

Is it a male or female? Happy138 (talk) 10:15, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

this picture suggests that she is female. Happy138 (talk) 10:20, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! Of course, she is female. I think you can even see this by the final e at the end of her first name. Tomeasy T C 11:03, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

More in French article[edit]

For more material to expand the article, note that there are more details in the French article which is about twice as long (and existed before today). Dirac66 (talk) 15:00, 6 October 2008 (UTC)


"AIDS virus"[edit]

It would be more correct to say "Her knowledge in this field led her to discover HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, in 1983" rather than "Her knowledge in this field led her to discover the AIDS virus in 1983." AIDS is the name of the disease. HIV is the name of the agent that causes the disease. She discovered HIV, the agent of AIDS. 71.207.151.17 (talk) 18:49, 9 October 2008 (UTC)Brapp

Reference for the literature containing the photo.[edit]

There is no reference for the literature containing the electron micrographs on her page? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jinx69 (talkcontribs) 05:33, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Clicking on the image, you can see that its direct source is the CDC Public Health Image Library, and from there dig deeper to look for their sourcing. DMacks (talk) 05:44, 20 August 2012 (UTC)
