Abstract
The Society for Invertebrate Pathology (SIP) is foremost in the world covering all aspects of related research in insect virology, bacteriology, mycology, parasitology and microbial control. The SIP has a wide scientific appeal with members from many countries spanning every continent in the globe. Election of members to the Society's Governing Council is based on scientific standing, contributions, reputation and involvement in the activities of the Society. At the recent annual meeting in August 2018, in the Gold Coast of Australia, Prof. Hu Zhihong was inaugurated as the President of the SIP having been elected by worldwide members to take charge of the Society's activities, direction and scientific standing. Prof. Hu's qualifications as a scientist and a leader are impeccable and far-reaching. Her outstanding scientific achievements, salient contributions to the field of virology and innovative approaches to research made her a world-renowned scientist. She has so far published no less than 150 manuscripts, mostly in internationally refereed scientific journals. Her contributed and invited presentations at the annual meetings of the Society often reflected the state-of-the-art in molecular virology. All this gave members of the SIP ample reasons to elect her as the President. Her experience as a past Director General of the Wuhan Institute of Virology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences will help her immensely in running and directing the SIP to achieve even greater heights. No doubt, she will be an exceptional President.
