Video coverage of San Francisco awards to Dr. Hütter "Three years ago, a doctor from Berlin performed a stem cell transplant that likely cured a man's HIV. Now California researchers hope to advance the doctor's research.

The awards and ceremony to honor the work of Dr. Gero Hütter were organized by the AIDS Policy Project. The patient, a U.S. citizen treated in Berlin, has been free of detectable HIV for about three years so far.
