The Society on Sarcopenia, Cachexia and Wasting Disorders sadly announces the tragic loss of Prof. Kenneth Fearon, one of its Board members.
Ken Fearon was Professor of Surgical Oncology at Edinburgh University and Honorary Consultant Colorectal Surgeon at the Western General Hospital, Edinburgh, UK. His contributions to the field of wasting disorders are exceptional.
Prof. Fearon’s role as a researcher and educator have been widely acknowledged by the Cachexia & Sarcopenia community. The SCWD has received many messages remembering his personal qualities, vision, wisdom, frankness, enthusiasm, energy, humor, wit, openness and many more. We will always remember him.
Our thoughts go out in particular to his family and all those closely associated with him.
He will be honoured during the upcoming 9th international Cachexia Conference in Berlin and in other educational projects in the future.
Already 80 abstracts submitted. The deadline for late breaking research and late breaking clinical abstracts is 30 September 2016
