9 Jan (KPFK Radio) – Gary Null interviews investigative reporter Celia Farber, UC Berkeley Prof. Peter Duesberg PhD, Christian Fiala MD and OMSJ Director Clark Baker for an HIV update. Peter Duesberg PhD is professor of Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of California at Berkeley. He was the first to isolate a cancer gene through his work with retrovir uses back in 1970 and mapped the genetic structure of this class of viruses. His work in retrovirus research awarded him an election to the National Academy of Sciences and Outstanding Investigator Grants from the National Institutes of Health. Based upon his knowledge of retroviruses, he has been at the forefront in challenging the virus-AIDS hypothesis and has published in the world’s leading medical journals. As a consequence, Dr. Duesberg’s hypothesis has won support from many scientists who have been outcast from publishing their views, including Nobel laureates such Kary Mullis, inventor of PCR technology.
Those also interviewed are:
- Celia Farber is a journalist who covered the HIV wars extensively since 1987, in various magazines. Some of these writings are collected in her book: “Serious Adverse Events: An Uncensored History of AIDS” published by Melville House Press, (now Random House) in 2006. Activist Michael Callen called Farber “..the best AIDS journalist in the world.” Her 2006 article for Harper’s magazine detailing the corruption of HIV/AIDS research was titled “Out of Control: AIDS And The Corruption of Medical Science.” Attacks from the AIDS industry on Celia’s research have been predictable and fierce.

Clark served on the Board of the Semmelweis Society International, a foundation that awards individuals for their scientific independence in innovative research and critical thought in the absence of invested interests. He has written extensively on his investigations into the activities of the pro HIV community.
