“The Institute of Human Virology sends our thoughts and prayers to the friends and families of those aboard Malaysian Airlines flight MH17, which crashed in Ukraine yesterday.  We are especially saddened to learn that our colleagues from the University of Amsterdam - Joep Lange and his partner, Jacqueline van Tongeren, were among the victims traveling to the 20th International AIDS Conference in Melbourne, Australia.  As we learn the identities of other possible victims traveling to the Conference, may we remember their passion and dedication to solving the AIDS pandemic and honor their legacy by ending AIDS.”
