A Washington-based reporter for the Chicago Tribune, Crewdson wrote an award-winning article about the discovery of HIV. His topic here, however, is not AIDS, nor even science, but how scientists behave when the stakes are really high. Gallo, a star scientist with the National Cancer Institute, falsely claimed to have isolated HIV and to have developed the antibody test for it.
