Luc Montagnier(1932-), a physician and virologist is best known as discoverer, or co-discoverer of the human immunodeficiency virus. The co-discovery issue involved a bitter dispute with Robert Gallo.

Montagnier shared in the 2008 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine with two other virologists; Gallo was conspicuously not one of them.

He spent much of his career at the French Institut Pasteur. As of early 2011, he is about to move to Shanghai Jiaotong University in China[1].
