Statement Regarding Malaysia Airlines Flight

Science Update

We are deeply saddened to learn that a number of leaders in the AIDS research community were among those who died on the Malaysia Airlines flight yesterday in eastern Ukraine. These researchers were on their way to attend the International AIDS Conference in Melbourne, Australia. This is a tremendous loss to the AIDS research community and the world.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of all 298 people who lost their lives. We mourn with you.
