About the Authors

The PLoS Medicine Editors


Competing Interests

During GY's fellowship, ground transportation, a desk, and internet access were provided by the Malaria Consortium, an international nonprofit organization, and by the KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Research Programme. The PLoS Medicine Editors' individual competing interests are at http://www.plosmedicine.org/static/editorsInterests.action. PLoS is funded partly through manuscript publication charges, but the PLoS Medicine Editors are paid a fixed salary (their salary is not linked to the number of papers published in the journal).
