Travel Awards 2018
As Editor-in-Chief of Viruses, I am pleased to announce the winners of the Viruses Travel Awards for 2018:
Travel Awards were granted to Dr. Gabrielle Vieyres, post-doctoral researcher at the Institute of Experimental Virology, TWINCORE- Centre for Experimental and Clinical Infection Research GmbH, Hannover, Germany (laboratory of Dr. Thomas Pietschmann), and to Nandan Gokhale, PhD student at the Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC USA (laboratory of Dr. Stacy Horner). Dr. Vieyres’s research focuses on the interplay between HCV replication and the host lipid metabolism. Mr. Gokhale’s research deals with how the RNA modification N6-methyladenosine (m6A) regulates RNA virus infection, both at the viral and host level.
Each travel award provides 800 Swiss Francs to attend any virology conference in 2018.
Congratulations to the winners of this very competitive travel award.
