In Memory of Mark Wainberg: Aldatu Advisor and HIV Pioneer

It is with deep sadness that we pass along news of the sudden death of our friend, mentor, and Scientific Advisory Board member, Prof. Mark Wainberg. Mark was one of the earliest supporters of Aldatu and our efforts to bring PANDAA to patients, and for that he will always have our gratitude. His passing represents a tremendous loss for not only our company, but the entire HIV community. Our hearts and thoughts are with his family and colleagues today.
