GYA has 40 new members!
Under the leadership of Mohamed Elhadidy (Zewail City for Science and Technology, Egypt) the 51 members of the selection committee have selected 40 new members to join the GYA in June 2020 for a tenure of five years.
The applications were evaluated by at least three selection committee members in two rounds of reviews and thus scored based on GYA excellency criteria.
We warmly welcome our new member cohort of excellent scientists and researchers, who represent 30 different countries and all GYA general disciplines. Our new members include 23 females, 1 non-binary, and 16 males.
COVID-19 Primer from Executive Committee member
The COVID-19 virus is on everybody’s mind these days – and rightfully so.
To help make sense of the situation, we reached out to GYA Executive Committee member Sandra Lopez-Verges (Gorgas Memorial Institute for Health Studies, Panama), who is a microbiologist/virologist.

Open Access publishing takes a leap forward
The GYA is part of a consortium, led by F1000 Research, a leading Open Access publisher, and also including Eurodoc and LIBER as partners, that was awarded the contract to build and promote the platform.
This new collaboration, which will involve outreach and training activities, is also a great opportunity to promote Open Science more generally.
