Dear Colleagues,

As Editor-in-Chief of Viruses, I am pleased to announce the winners of the Viruses Travel Awards for 2020: Dr. Gary Wang, post-doctoral researcher at the Columbia University Medical Center, USA, and Evangelia-Georgia Kostaki, PhD student at the First Department of Medicine, Laiko General Hospital, Medical School, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece. Dr. Wang’s research has revealed that Yin Yang 1 (YY1), a member of the GLI-Krüppel class of DNA and RNA binding transcription factors, potently transactivates gene expression from the HTLV-1 LTR by acting via RNA, rather than DNA, binding. Ms Kostaki’s research relates to the molecular epidemiology of HIV-1 infection and its applications to public health.

Each travel award provides 800 Swiss Francs to attend a virology conference in 2020.

Congratulations to the winners of this very competitive travel award.

Editor-in-Chief,
Dr. Eric O. Freed
