Great times for scientist mom: South African HIV researcher on Time's 100 influential people list

Great times for scientist mom: South African HIV researcher on Time's 100 influential people list
She is the second South African to make the list, following Thuli Madonsela in 2014.
Her work in determining which drugs stop HIV-positive mothers from transmitting the virus to their babies and which HIV-exposed babies should be given was recognised by the prestigious magazine.
According to the most recent figures, less than 1% of all babies with HIV-positive mothers are born HIV positive in South Africa. Before Gray's work about 25% of all infants born to positive mothers contracted the virus.
