The scientific community mourns the untimely demise of Jeffrey P. Nadler, MD, who passed way after an unexpected but prolonged illness. We his colleagues, his students and his friends remember him as a researcher, physician and a mentor who gave of himself every day to the cause of HIV/AIDS research, education and treatment. This was accompanied by boundless energy for the things he loved: students, scientists and the society.

Before he retired in early 2010 Dr. Nadler was directing the Therapeutics Research Program at the National Institutes of AIDS and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health in USA. Dr. Nadler's academic journey spans over two decades enriched with academic contributions as a teacher, a researcher and an acclaimed writer.

Dr. Nadler served in various roles as a Faculty and an Academic leader at well known institutions like the VA Medical system in New York, Florida and the State University of New York Health System. Before he joined NIH in 2007 Dr. Nadler was leading the HIV research program as Professor of Infectious Diseases at the University of South Florida in Tampa.

The Most humbling gift of service to those with HIV in India was the 5 years Dr. Nadler dedicated in helping to set up an HIV testing and care program in a time when HIV was still taboo.

Throughout his career Dr. Nadler laid special emphasis on having an compassionate approach to connecting care competencies and culture. He helped develop HIV programs in Brazil, South America and India. He wrote numerous research articles and gave countless hours to lecturing and teaching students and colleagues. During his career Dr. Nadler helped develop and conduct innumerable clinical trials thus contributing to the invention of more than 20 antiviral medications which are now routinely used to treat HIV patients. These drugs include some potent anti-viral agents for multi-drug resistant retroviruses. Dr. Nadler also lead one of the earliest human studies to research a HIV vaccine which later helped the reliability of modern research based treatment algorithms.

Dr. Nadler was an icon of clinical research who was generous, humble and caring. He believed that HIV was both a challenge and opportunity for society and medicine to revisit the concepts of ethics and humanity. He always stressed on Human care over Medical Care and inspired all health workers and patients around him.

Dr. Nadler will always be missed for his self but be remembered for his teachings and his practice of life. May God bless his soul and give the strength to his wife Mrs. Constance Price and his whole family which includes his colleagues, students, friends and patients across countries, cultures and continents.
