Thank you

The success of a journal is determined to a large degree by the quality and dedication of reviewers. Editors and Editorial Board members are recognized for their efforts, but the invaluable input of voluntary reviewers is often overlooked. At Gene Therapy, we appreciate that reviewing manuscripts can be demanding and time-consuming, especially with typically overcrowded agendas. With this in mind, we wish to recognize the Gene Therapy reviewers for their efforts. Many thanks to all our reviewers for their support and input! We would also like to reward the top 10 reviewers with a years free online subscription to Nature.
