As Editor-in-Chief of Epigenomes, I am pleased to announce the winner of the Travel Award in Epigenomes 2020
It has been granted to Dr. Andrea Piunti, a Post-doc Fellow at Northwestern University in Chicago.

It was a difficult decision with such high-quality applications for the awards, and we would like to thank all applicants for submitting their diverse and fascinating range of research topics. On behalf of the assessment committee, I congratulate the winner for his accomplishments. We are proud to support this young scientist and wish him further success in his career.
