Camacho
Ricardo Jorge Gonçalves Ornelas Camacho
(23 May 1954 - 4 July 2018)

Dr Ricardo J Camacho graduated in Medicine in Lisbon Medical School, Universidade de Lisboa. In 1994 he becomes the head of the Virology Laboratory in Hospital Egas Moniz (currently Centro Hospitalar de Lisboa Ocidental), in Lisbon, now one of the Portuguese AIDS reference laboratories. He retired from his hospital duties in 2013.

With a research affiliation to the Institute of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, his main fields of interest were HIV-1 resistance in non-B subtypes and HIV-2 resistance. His research papers in this field ranked among the top papers.

Ricardo Camacho was heavily involved in the continuous education of virologists and clinicians to train them in the treatment of HIV-1 and HIV-2 patients and in HIV drug resistance interpretation, through lectures in hospitals and meetings. 

Ricardo served on the Scientific Committee of this meeting since the very first edition. We will miss his enthusiastic contributions and his great personality. Our hearts go out to his wife Anne-Mieke Vandamme and her familty and friends.
