A huge loss to research

Among those 298 souls lost yesterday (in what looks to be a deplorable, deliberate act of violence), was a team of AIDS researchers headed to a conference in Australia, including Dr. Joep Lange, “the architect and principal investigator of several pivotal trials on antiretroviral therapy and on the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of H.I.V. in both the developed and developing world.”

My heart is heavy with this news.
