In memoriam: Professor Andrea De Luca (1964-2019)

New Content ItemIt is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of Prof Andrea De Luca, who tragically passed away on February 4th 2019 in a car accident.  Prof De Luca, who was based at the University of Siena, Italy, dedicated many years of his life to clinical research on the treatment of HIV and hepatitis, HIV drug resistance, the toxicity of antiretrovirals as well as the impact of hepatitis virus co-infections.

As a valued member of our editorial board, his death is a tremendous loss to our journal, but more importantly to the field of HIV research, where his efforts and contributions will live on.
