Prof. Howard Morris 2019-06-24T13:17:52Z /ifcc-news/2019-04-20-prof-howard-morris-ifcc-president/ IFCC Office 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.

The funeral service for Professor Howard Morris was held on Thursday 16th May

The service was live streamed. Details on how to access are available here. The link will be accessible for up to a month after the service for those who were unable to watch live. In lieu of flowers, a donation in the memory of Howard may be made to UniSA at giving@unisa.edu.au

The opening of the upcoming Euromedlab Congress in Barcelona will be a tribute to the memory of Prof Morris and his contributions to IFCC.
