It seems to be a fairly standard practice to feature author affiliation information in abstract and article page displays online, attached directly to the author names. Some examples: 

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20037032
http://www.plosbiology.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pbio.1000594
http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v470/n7335/full/470468a.html

We have author information displayed in an RT block on the sidebar (the Author Biography block), if the RT is enabled, but this information might be a little hidden. We could additionally link to this information from the author names fairly easily, I think. One way might be to link to a pop-up from the author's name to an author bio page (similarly to how the Masthead currently works); another would be to list the affiliations under the author names, as footnotes. I'm not a huge fan of the footnote convention, myself. Any thoughts about this?
