BASIC VIROLOGY

In Memoriam

Edward K. Wagner

It was one of those telephone calls that you do not want to receive. Each of us, that weekend in late January, heard of the untimely passing of our colleague, co-author, collaborator, mentor, and friend, Ed Wagner. Ed will be remembered for his many contributions to the teaching of virology and for his research contributing to our understanding of the intricacies of the herpesviruses. From his graduate work at MIT, through his postdoctoral research at the University of Chicago, and on to his professorship at the University of California, Irvine, Ed was a passionate champion for the most rigorous and critical thinking and the most dedicated teaching, setting a standard for the discipline of virology. Beyond the laboratory and the classroom, Ed loved life to the fullest, with his family and friends. The last time we were together as a writing team, in the fall of 2005, we all remember an intense day of work in a conference room at UCI, followed by an evening of touring some of Ed's favorite haunts in the Southern California coastal towns he called home. It is with those thoughts etched into our memories that we dedicate this edition of Basic Virology to Edward K. Wagner.
