Vincent Racaniello, PhD, is Higgins Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City. He is one of four virologists who has recently authored Principles of Animal Virology, a textbook used by many teaching virology to undergraduate, medical and graduate students.[1]

Racaniello runs the popular TWiV blog and podcast with regular interviews in the field of virology.

His Virology blog has published the long-running series,Trial By Error written by Dr. David Tuller, criticizing the PACE trial, including open letters to The Lancet demanding an independent review of the controversial PACE trial.[2][3][4][5]

Open Letters[edit | edit source]

The Lancet[edit | edit source]

Three open letters to the editor of The Lancet urged the editor to commission a fully independent review of the PACE trial, which the journal had published in 2011. The first, written in 2015, was signed by Dr. Racaniello and 5 of his colleagues. In 2016, thirty-six additional colleagues in the ME/CFS field, signed the second letter. In July of 2018, Racianello and more than one hundred other colleagues signed the third letter.
