It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Professor Howard Morris, President of the IFCC. Professor Morris was an accomplished medical scientist, educator and administrator. Above all he was a gentleman and a professional in all that he did. He will be remembered for his many contributions to Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine worldwide, especially in the area of Vitamin D and bone metabolism. He worked tirelessly on IFCC Committees including his most recent role as President of IFCC.

His passing is a great loss to all of us.

Prof. Maurizio Ferrari, IFCC Past President and Dr. David Kinniburgh, IFCC Executive Board Secretary
