A Tribute to Professor Martin Fisher

21 APRIL 2015

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of our colleague Professor Martin Fisher, leading HIV clinician and researcher based in Brighton, the United Kingdom. Through many years of prolific work, Professor Fisher established himself as a firm advocate for high standards of HIV care. He was a talented researcher and a great educator, and gave generously of his talents in many of the EACS activities, in particular as a much appreciated faculty member of the EACS Advanced HIV Course. It is difficult for us to imagine a course, a conference, another EACS event without Martin. We enjoyed his charismatic and warm personality, and will treasure the memories of the many professional and social moments we shared. He will be sorely missed.
