Philippe Lemey is a FWO postdoctoral researcher at the Rega Institute, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium, where he completed his PhD in Medical Sciences. He has been an EMBO fellow and a Marie-Curie fellow in the Evolutionary Biology Group at the Department of Zoology, University of Oxford. His research focuses on molecular evolution of viruses by integrating molecular biology and computational approaches.

Marco Salemi is a postdoctoral scientist in the Medical Faculty at the Katholieke Universiteit, Belgium. He currently holds a research position at the University of California, Irvine, where he works on epidemiological virology and phylogenetic analysis, focusing on the molecular epidemiology of human pathogenic viruses, such as HIV and HCV. He is supported by the Fund for Scientific Research - Flanders, Belgium.
