Local AIDS research community mourns doctors on Malaysian flight

The tragedy of Malaysia Flight 17 is hitting close to home for Houston's AIDS research community.

About 100 AIDS researchers were on board the flight, headed to an international AIDS conference in Australia, according to officials. Among the victims is top researcher Joseph Lange, a Dutch father of five.

"I found him to be not just a good physician, but a fantastic research physician, as well as a humanitarian and a family man," said Dr. Joseph Gathe of Houston.
Gathe, an infectious disease specialist, befriended Lange 20 years ago. They remained friends through the years, meeting up at AIDS conferences. The last time Gathe saw Lange was about six months ago at a conference.
