Between the first analysis of patient samples in early 1983 and the determination of the sequence of HIV-1 in 1985, a vast amount of data was accumulated on HIV through the integrated efforts of clinicians, virologists, immunologists, molecular biologists and epidemiologists. These early years of HIV research quickly led to strategies for the diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of HIV/AIDs.
