We are extremely sad to learn of Professor Mark Wainberg’s death. Mark was a great colleague and active Trustee. His contribution to HIV research, advocacy and his mentorship for so many young researchers across the globe has made genuine differences to so many lives. We will miss his tremendous support, input and encouragement.
